Yup, helps that I love the outsiders by S E Hinton. HAve you read the book?
Yeah, a long time ago. Back when I was 12 methinks. Gotta love Pony and Soda and the rest... Wasn't until recently I learned that it was written by a teenage girl.

my fav is The Flea by John Donne..... he uses brilliant language to convey the idea that Donne and the mistress (and the flea later on), are meant to be together: whether looking at the poem graphically, reading aloud in groups of 2 or 3, the rhyme, etc. Even the imagery seems to work perfectly too.....

I shd probably dig up my copy of John Donne (I studied it 2 yrs ago), and type to poem out here...

the movie features loads of well known actors when they were younger. The characters are wicked, and you can just imagine quiet but quite athletic Pony, good looking Soda, muscly Darry etc.

My mom made me (try to) memorise the Raven when I was younger. She knows it by heart and thought I should to. At least I impressed my literature teacher, who (luckily) stopped me after one stanza when asked if anyone had ever heard of it. Poe rocks though.

Am interested in people's favourite poems. I know its hard, but if you like, favourite poem of the moment:

Mine has got to be either Philp Larkin "Aubade" or "This be the verse"
There was a young lady from Limne
Who ate some apples and died
The apples fermented,
inside the lamented,
made cider inside her inside.

Poe goes off Try the Geebung Polo Club though. Patterson had a gift for doing light comedic comedy when he wanted to. Though I guess The Man From Snowy River still rates as his greatest by the general populous.
