Even though it is late in the month, I wanted to give you a list of five poetry collections to read for poetry month. It is some variety in terms of the collections and it is just a small number of poetry collections that are actually available. As there is a book for each reader, there is a poet/a poem/a poetry collection for each reader. Trust me, I know the feeling of being fed up by poetry analysis at school and I didn't really appreciate poetry until I started at university, thanks to an amazing teacher in American literature who introduced us to Allen Ginsberg and Sylvia Plath among others (thanks Eric, for sparking my joy of poetry).
Anyway, here is my tiny list of poetry collections and anthologies worth checking out. If you know of any poetry collections/anthologies you want to recommend, feel free to post in the comment section below.
