Any interesting poets who aren't apart of any AQA/ GCSE or Alevel spec? I really like poets from working class backgrounds or try to experiment with styles and themes etc. Anything controversial is appreciated. Not Tony Harrison.

Edwin Morgan, Philip Larkin, Liz Lochhead. Any use?

Morgan is particularly controversial. Try 'the Death of Marilyn Monroe' or 'Pink Triangle'. Some of his love poems are very controversial for the time as well as he was gay.

THE 1St Diary POEMS by Prudee M. She's so amazing. Read her tweets @love_n_feelings to see how well she writes her poetry. There's so much meaning in her every sentenced. And when she talked about writing a book, I knew I was going to buy it. She defines love in THE 1st Diary POEMS and then follow with 4 poems relating to.each definition of love. My favourite was- Love is the root of all things that never came into existence. I find a lot of hope in her writing
