Poetry and Play Bucket List

A section of my growing personal poetry collection.

The thing with my reading of poetry is that I do not have fixed readings. My ideal poetry book is a sickly thin paperback written (and at time self published) by unrecognisable poets and play writes. Those slim volumes that amount to no mass attention, yet often speak is the most brilliant of ways to me. I find that they often give the term hidden gem a whole world of tangible meaning.

However, until I find more “gems”, here are a list of poems and plays I look forward to reading one day…

  1. Howl by Allen Ginsberg
  2. The Complete Collected Poems by Maya Angelou
  3. Beowulf: A New Translation by Seamus Heaney
  4. Jerusalem by Jez Butterworth
  5. Mojo by Jez Butterworth
  6. The Skin of Our Teeth by Thornton Wilder
  7. The History Boys by Alan Bennet
  8. The Last Night of the Earth Poems by Charles Bukowski
  9. Cuckoo Calling: A Book of Verse for Youthful People by E.V.Rieu
  10. The Flattered Flying Fish and Other Poems by E.V.Rieu
  11. Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav
  12. The Prophet by Khalil Gibran
  13. Collected Poems by Sylvia Plath

And I cannot express how desperately I want to own, hold and devour Beat Poets by Carmela Cuirara.
