#PoetryMonth – Books I read in College

It’s another Sunday during Poetry Month. With that comes another list of poetry recommendations.

Last week, I recommended some Indie poetry collections to check out. This time around, I’m digging into my stacks. I put together a list of books I had to read for poetry courses back in college. Most are collections. There’s also an anthology and a textbook. There was one more textbook I read for a course, but I couldn’t remember the name of it and can’t find it on my lists anywhere. Even without it, I think this is a great list to check out. My professor(s) thought so.

Oh, and you’ll notice two bonus books listed. One is by my poetry professor. I got that back in college, without his influence to do so. I feel it has a strong influence on my own work though. The other is one of the collections he suggested that I check out (along with a few others like Plath and James Wright) because of the similarities with my work. I’ve read that one a few times already.

If you check any of these out, I hope you enjoy them. I wasn’t the biggest fan of every single one, but none of them were bad. I’ll have to do a reread of most of them once I’m reunited with them (almost all of these are back in NY). It’s been many years since I’ve opened them up.

Find something you might want to read? I hope so. Want to see another set of recommendations focused on a theme? Let me know what that theme is, and if you can help with some recs for it, include them in the message.

Happy reading!
