WHICH POETS HAVE MOST INFLUENCED YOU?

Emily Dickinson, for her economy; Shakespeare, for his geometric patterning; Elizabeth Bishop, for her precision; Manley Hopkins, for his extravagant tensions; Jorie Graham, for her sustained experimentation with form; Lewis Carroll, for his rhythms; Dr Seuss, for his irrepressible sense of whimsy, and the absurd.

ARE POEMS 'INSPIRED' OR MAINLY THE WORK OF CRAFT?

Life is inspiring. Poetry is (joyful) work.
