I realise this has probably been done a lot of times before so I apologise. :sorry: But who is your favourite poet? Mine is Rimbaud.

That al Maktoum guy's poetry is so piss poor, it's unbelievable. Same with his son Fazza3. Why the hell do I even know these names? Sort it out.

Mine's T.S Eliot and John Donne.

thats certainly not true...there are plenty of poems from Sheikh Mohammed in Arabic which are amazing. The problem is you can't translate literally into English when dealing with Nabati poetry because it is different from classical Arabic poetry.:yep: if you read the Arabic poems directly then they are very nice!
I like T.S Eliot too...Thomas Hardy too! But Hardy's poems tend to have that "pessimistic" feeling.

Well, I translate them myself in my spare time with the help of a friend and I can't say I feel anything but underwhelmed. Some Arabic poems are delightful though. People only likes his poetry because.....well, he's a Sheikh.

Thomas Hardy is a bit hit and miss for me as well. At times he can be so incredibly seasoned and dexterous in his penmanship but then he goes ruins it all for himself with Tess d'Urbervilles.

Always Philip Larkin.

I also like Elizabeth Bishop, Louis MacNeice, TS Eliot and John Donne, though. Also Paradise Lost.

Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silv’ry Tay!
Alas! I am very sorry to say
That ninety lives have been taken away
On the last Sabbath day of 1879,
Which will be remember’d for a very long time.

Beautiful :cry2:

hahahaha
