King Lear by Shakespeare A Woman is Talking to Death by Judy Grahn To Mistress Margaret Hussey by John Skelton
Not a single movement or period, but a lot of the poetry I love is older and written with a sense of how the language sounds - not just or necessarily rhyme, but also meter, assonance and consonance.
No, I didn't study theory per se, and if the jargon gets too obscure or ugly I skip it.
Shakespeare, Mary Webb (Precious Bane), Daniel M Pinkwater.
Not now - I'll probably just come when you pick something I like - I'm an organizer of the Seattle Shakespeare (Etc!) Readthrough Group meetup and that's keeping me busy with planning.
Hello! I was an English undergrad major and used to write poetry. Later I studied American Sign Language and linguistics, and now teach English to speakers of other languages. Can read some Old & Middle English; don't know much literary theory.
