I won't read Cervantes or García Márquez in English so to say. Reply deputyseal409 says: September 29, 2013 at 5:34 pm If you want to look at any new aspiring poets, I have a book of poetry out on Amazon. The cover has a blue rose on it, just like my picture here and the title is simply 'Poems". Reply Yvonne Green says: December 9, 2013 at 7:57 am When a poet speaks it's the soul speaking in tongues, so a poem should be heard first, the first instinctive responses being to sound, after that hear it again while a copy of the poem is followed with a close eye, after that do what you want with it.

Too affective. Reply visceral fate says: March 11, 2014 at 6:49 pm Bless Librivox and the internet for providing all the wonderful works of these great literary masters.We are very lucky to live in a day and age where we can access 1000s of honorary classics as fast as a click. I do appreciate books and hope they don't become obsolete or even mocked as I can start to see happening with the rise of convenience that digital libraries provide. Nothing quite beats holding a book beside a warm fireplace on a quiet and stormy night.. right?

Eliot's The Hollow Men. I do see it as entirely negative but a warning as a the Ghost of Christmas Future in Dickens A Christmas Carol. I especially love Walt Whitman because it is simple but profound and earthy and does not get lost in the thin air of loftier stratospheres and alienate the more common man. Some of his poems border a philosophy. One of my own favories is titled O Living Always, Always Dying. O living always, always dying!O the burials of me past and present,O me while I stride ahead, material, visible, imperious as ever O me, what I was for years, now dead,(I lament not, I am content.) O to disengage myself from those corpses of me, which I turn and look at where I cast them, To pass on, (O living! always living!) andleave the corpses behind. Such a beautiful poem that some read literally but I interpret as positive and hopeful, but sadly we cannot "leave the corpses behind" and drag round like (another allusion to Dickens) Jacob Marley and the chains that he has himself forged and must be burdened down by.hereafter and forever. But our "corpses" take many different shapes and even delude ourselves our need for them and live eternally in a cemetary of ourselves, as both mourner and tenant simultaneously. Or, as Whitman declares in another poem: Forward, forever forward. Reply Man O'Neal says: October 7, 2014 at 8:24 pm Leaves of grass? More like leaves of ASS! Nah but seriously, Walt Whitman was the man. Reply MoonBlossom says: January 4, 2015 at 4:42 am I have a question for anyone who may care to answer it: Is every version of Leaves of Grass different? I have a copy of the original version and this is NOT what is in the book. Reply Anabel Lee says: August 29, 2015 at 3:54 pm Bravi Tutti.

TOTALLY RUINED IT FOR ME. im sure others out there like to read along as its being spoken? I cant be the only one. Reply Ixta Flores says: December 22, 2019 at 12:25 am 😒 I think I am tone deaf to poetry in English. I used to love the sound of poems in Spanish yet something got lost in translation. I, however, can perceive the call of the soul and the appreciation of the mother, Mother Earth.
