No ideas but in BLOGS
Didn't seem to be able to open it up.First poetry crush: Garcia Lorca. And this girl at my high school who was a junior when I was a senior.
Er... Open what up?!
"It"! You know, "it"! ;o)First poet crush = Browning. My freshman community college comp/lit instructor surveyed the lot of us in honors English and said, none of you will ever get a doctorate. And none of you will ever read The Ring & the Book.Well I proved him...right. I started reading it that day, at 17...not sure I've ever finished the thing. Some judicious skipping. I was pretty crazy for a Richard Burton recording of "Andrea del Sarto," though.
Hughes, how could it be anyone but Hughes?!
I was and am a promiscuous crusher -- I started with the usual loves of a teenaged girl -- Plath, ridiculous amounts of Sexton -- then moved on to whatever I could find at the used book shop -- Hudgins, Larkin, Homer, Galway Kinnell -- then in college developed all new crushes on Louise Gluck, Jorie Graham, Shakespeare, John Berryman. I've never been particularly faithful, I'm afraid.
