Naomi Shihab Nye


just wondered if she had any other fans here...I've been half in love w/ her ever since reading "Hugging the Jukebox" fifteen or so years ago. Other poets of personal interest: Anna Swir;Laura Fargas; William Stafford; early James Tate. Going backwards in time: Ginsberg; Whitman, Coleridge and the metaphysical poets as a group. Oh yeah...Shakespeare's sonnets. Strongly dislike: most of the beats; most of the confessional poets. Fairly sweeping generalizations and w/ many caveats..but will do for starters.
