Is that your own private list or have you copied it from somewhere? I´m wondering why you chose Herbert from all Polish poets. There are a few better known than him. And why would this list be in Turkish Poetry part? Are you implying that they were all Turkish? :O

Yilgin, I have moved your thread to General forum as it is not related to Turkish poetry.

For the attention of Daydreamer :

It is my own private list from my private study.

For example, “The Waste Land by  T.S.Eliot (1922)  was selected the best poem of the century by TIME Magazine (U.S.A.), (200.

Runners-up : The Second  Coming by W.B.Yeats ; Home Burial by Robert Frost.

For the attention of Yilgun:


Posts should be posted to the forums that they belong to. If the title reads Turkish literature and poetry it means it is dedicated to TURKISH poets and writers, not to the list of big names collected from other people´s posts. All British and Irish poets you mention are those covered by any course in literature. Of course you may have read them (let me keep my doubts to myself though) and even like them. In such case you should have added your list to the already existing thread instead of posting a list as if they were really all time poets. I don´t agree all of them are and your personal opinion does not make them ones.


Of course you´re free to post whatever google lets you find but in my own personal opinion, you should rather stick to makes of cars or places in the world as you seem more credible in such topics. Please understand that posting big names that everybody knows does not make you an "intellectual" au contraire.

All this Yilgun bashing is starting to sound a bit like bullying


After all, what is his "crime" really?  It may be annoying to post the same thread twice, but are some of these comments really necessary?


He is only young and has not got a bad bone in his body .....


Flowers for you canim Yilgun
