OK, heres my quickly scribbled list, based on my own observations during my time here, from reading forums posts and visiting a page or two, for what its worth. in reality, lists are silly. i mean, who's the 'better' poet, auden or eliot?its a silly question. but again, Ovid came close to nailing it. Wannargue with my list?Couldnt care less. Its my opinion, though I'd call it a fairly studied one. In descending order - strongest to weakest, with a couple words of explanation. in the end, its really about who's getting their name in print, so while this is 'fun', it doesn't mean diddly squat.
Danny - whatever you think of form, the guy can do sonnets, villanelles, etc.
Hogg - musical and interesing.
Palmer - musical, inventive without going off a cliff
meta - strong content
Carter - strong content
Dog 8 - inventive, pushes linguistic envelope
Delilah - nice, experimental wordplay
Angie - nice imagery
Acker. -.some ok philosophical moments
