    Serafina, although you say you trust no-one, the list of 500 on the home page extension tells you the poets who are actually read today. Though I must warn you that certain living poets have a way of boosting their position on that table. As you will soon realise when you read their poetry.
    The list of the currently favourite 500 poems, however, is a rather better guide, at least as far as the first 250 - being less subject to tampering.

    I was wondering has anyone read or even heard any words of JOHN COOPER CLARKE.

      Neil, the name was familiar in earlier years as having a certain reputation but beyond that I, maddeningly, can't remember anything more. Google? Phone/email Poetry Society's librarian?

    Mark, the wallpaper in question is quoted as having said 'eh bien mes chers, il y a toujours a tous les vies un plus grand dessin ' ('there's a greater pattern to every life...')

    I've been of the opinion lately that a few of Larkin's poem's (i.e. Nothing to Be Said' has similar themes to Under Milkwood) speak to Dylan Thomas' work - though I haven't read he was influenced by his work.

    everytime i write a poem, a wart seems to grow in the comment section
    and it is a bad wart bad poetry, but i suppose we do have people with really tiny brains in the world, who would actually read it, the author of the wartish poetry is a very sick person he doesn't know this because he is not thinking that clearly at the moment, when i saw it i wasn't surprised or amazed
    not even amused, fans sometimes become erratic so i must live with it

    Dylan Thomas' reported last words - 'After 39 years, this is all I've done' It looks like there isn't much hope for the rest of us!
