Good list. I'm seeing CK Williams at an upcoming reading. I'd add Stephen Dunn as another wonderful contemporary poet.

    Yes, JC, anyone who dares to out Tony Hoagland on a list with Heaney is either a jokester or knows little about great poetry. -LP

      C'mon, Lamont, mellow out. Just because you have a tin ear that hears only the most obvious of patterns, that can't hear the subtle " cadence" of Hoagland's poetry, no need to get snippy.

    PH, lucky you! He's a great poet. And I like Dunn a lot though Lamont would whine about his not being iambic enough.
