    I read very little in either of those genres.

  2. I'm not a huge historical fiction fan, but some of my favorite poets are Robert Burns, Langston Hughes, Alfred Knoyes, and Alfred, Lord Tennyson

  3. Love your poetry list - I need to read more poetry. I haven't devoted myself to it since finishing school, but I remember enjoying those portions of literature class. Thanks for sharing!

  4. My favorite poet is actually Sarah Teasdale.

  5. I don't think I know her, or I have forgotten. I am going to see what I can find by her!

  6. I have been thinking lately I need to read more poetry, too, and this list inspired me even more. :)

  7. I like all of those poets, too! Good choices :)

  8. You have great taste in literary fiction and memoirs. I would like to see your list of your favorite authors in those!
