I'd recommend the work of Carl Sandburg:

I'm not sure there is any poetry without its own 'voice', or that cannot be read with feeling, but some suggestions might be,

Dickinson - lots of death themes
Housman - more of the same
Blake - religious themes
Browning - maybe the dramatic monologues, for a macabre effect
Fitzgerald - Omar Kayyam's Rubaiyat verses are all 'eat, drink & be merry'

hutto:

Hugh's list is a good one. If I were to choose one poet, I'd go with Housman; his themes are not very mysterious and his better-known works are rhythmic, making them easy to recite.

hutto-


Check out Walt Whitman's stuff in 'Classical Poets' section.
His work has a very distinctive 'voice' (LOTS of exclamation points!), and mostly involving America and its history.

Unfortunately, i don't think Housman involves American history in any way.
Candidates: Robinson Jeffers
Robert Frost
Randall Jarrell's war poems
Lincoln Kirstein: Rhymes & More rhymes of a PFC
Robert Lowell.

Dear Jack:

I had the date wrong. This coming Thursday is Bean night.
It should be fun. I'm planning on going
if my mouth feels better. I had gum grafts done
and I've been in bad pain but it's healing and clearing up.

Maybe see you there. Are you the dude who paints at The Scarab on weekends who I was trying to fix up with my friend?

Lisa
