Auden, I think. But there are so many I love! Yeats, Poe, Hardy and Tennyson are some of my favourites too

I really love William Carlos Williams. At the moment he's my favourite poet.

Auden isn't terrible, I suppose, so him. I have to study Dante next year at uni, but hopefully I'll be able to find it on Sparknotes or something like that.

Toss up between Philip Larkin, WH Auden and John Betjeman. I think Larkin just about edges out because reading his poetry aloud is joy.

Plath.
Really? Every time I think of her I see myself sitting in my old English Lit class reading To Eva Descinding the Stair absolutely bored out of my tree.

For me its a toss-up between Yeats, Hughes, Kavanagh, and Larkin.

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.
It is generally considered a great shame that Hardy's prose career was foreshortened, given that he was a better novelist than he was a poet.

Larkin.

(Milton comes in at a close second, but that rests almost solely on Paradise Lost.)

La Belle Dame Sans Merci and The Raven are my favourite poems, so John Keats and Edgar Allen Poe are right up there
