I would like to know what the title of the poem Tuscany shared is. Thanks in advance!


Hi Jennzer, and welcome to the board. I myself am a newbie but I like it, there are some interesting conversations that take place here.
Now to answer your question: the title of that poem by Edgar Allen Poe is "A dream within dream". Unfortunately I don't know what book you can find this poem in. But if you would like to read more of Poe's works online click on the following link. http://bau2.uibk.ac.at/sg/poe/Work.html : ) Your Welcome.

I've read Naomi Shihab Nye, and I quite enjoy her work...there is another poet who has a modern style similar to Nye's, but she focuses a lot more on nature and the outdoors--Mary Oliver, perhaps you've heard of her? Well, if you haven't, I would suggest reading her poem 'The Sun'--it's pretty easy to find online. :D

I don't think I have a particular favorite poet, I just like different poems by very different poets...one of my favorites is "Dulce Et Decorum Est" by Wilfred Owen
look it up it's v. strong and meaningful :)
I also like some of Frost's poetry, my favorite being "Mending Wall" I just find it so ironic!
