Thanks for your suggestion. I appreciate it, and I hope I will find in my country.

Thanks for the link. I download from Gutenberg often, but never have time to go through its catalogue.
Wish you nice evening.

As an English person with only a year's experience of anything Turkish, I am not well up on Turkish poets but I notice the posts are including other nationalities. So, in no particular order:

I have recently bought work by Yunus Emre and Rumi and my first impression is one of wonder.

Emily Bronte 1818 - 1848 England - little known as a poet and best known for her "Wuthering Heights", a brilliant piece of work.

Ted Hughes 1930 - 1998 England Poet and Author and I most admire his children's story "The iron Man" (appeals to adults too) which I think has many poetic phrases/techniques within it.

Roger McGough 1937 - England. Writer of children's poetry - we all have to start somewhere and I enjoyed sharing his poems with my daughter when she was young and also my students now.

Seamus Heaney - 1939 - Northern Ireland. I haven't read him in a long time but I remember studying his work at University and enjoying it.

William Wordsworth 1770-1850 England

William Shakespeare 1564-1616 England

Wilfred Owen 1893-1918 England

William Blake 1757 - 1827 England

Samuel Taylor Coleridge 1772 - 1834 England, - was also a philosopher

John Keats 1795-1821 England

There are many other English poets I could list but, as I don't read much of them it wouldn't be fair and I would like to leave room for some new ones, which I will search from the previous posts.

I would really recommend people to read The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Not a poem but the language and imagery is super. It's not such a long book either. He brought out a sequel some years ago to mark the 25th anniversary of the publication of The iron Man . . . I think it was called The Iron Woman but I may be wrong. I remember it was more of a 'scarey' theme than the first one though .

Thank you

I am very glad to see that people are still posting at this wonderful thread. Excellent job, peace train!

But I wonder what those holes up there mean... someone read Leopardi? Or stopped loving Shakespeare's sonnets? :-S Or I am just having a mid-winter night's dream?

O kiss me through the hole of this vile wall!

I wondered about the Vineyards gaps too

duda you made me laugh because you brought back a memory of mine. I played the part of one of those 2 shakespearean characters. I can't be bothered to research and look it up becasue I want to go to bed but I don't remember the name of the character, it was the one who was a man playing the woman's part. What makes that even more odd is, I went to an all girls' school so, I was a girl playing a man, playing a woman. I added a few props of my own without telling the Teacher: I shoved two balloons up the front of my costume, blacked my teeth out and stuck a pin on the end of the dagger. I said my line "Thus die I" stabbed myself (bang went the balloons)and collapsed. The other character made her speech whilst lying across me and we couldn't get our lines out for laughing. The play was produced for the school's Drama Cup . . . needless to say we didn't win, but who cares we had fun

Great, I am sure Shakespeare would have laughed himself! lol Well, that's an evidence that even the holes in balloons can't spoil a good play.

 Yilgun - why are you posting this when you already started another thread?  We don´t need to run two threads on so-called ´All Time Poets.
