Robert Browning, Tennyson
A couple of other options: suscribe to the email mailing list which sends you regular poems and find out what you like, or go to the poet list and go through it at random. Otherwise, regularly come back and see what comes around.
It depends much on your interest, dabble into any poet whose work sounds intriguing. I prefer the smorgasbord approach to becoming acquainted with poetry, rather than a set group of classic poets.
But for variance in style, you might try reading some Whitman, Swinburne, cummings, and Kipling.
Take a look at anthologies: if you find a poem you like look for the author
Garrison Keiller's "Good Poems" is a great anthology. I also recommend Edna St. Vincent Millay, Robert Lowell, and Sharon Olds.
Joseph Torelli recently recommended a volume of poems which were part of a "favorite" poem project.
The title of the book is: "An Invitation To Poetry." It is edited by Robert Pinsky and Maggie Dietz, and published by W. W. Norton & Co. LTD.
A lot to read in this site. Thanks
Try >the voice that is great within us< edited by Hayden Carruth for some modern American poetry. I used it to teach poetry for a few years and found many younger reader new to poetry got involved in the poetries collected there.
