speaking of similar things...
- is there such a thing as a poet similar to Gerard Manley Hopkins? I am
thinking of his use of language, the rolling alliterations and the religious
imagery. Although I'd settle for wonderful use of language, alliteration,
and a certain surrealism.
- Humbert Wolfe, AE (George William Russell), Stephen Crane, & Ralph Hodgson
come to mind.
Get ahold of a copy of "An Anthology of Modern American & British Poetry"
(unabridged version, 40's edition) edited by Louis Untermeyer. (Try your
library). This should give you enough of a taste of these and other poets
for you to know which ones you want to follow up on.
