In 1855, when Walt Whitman released Leaves of Grass, the government was outraged because of issues such as sexuality, warmongering and the corporeal world. Nobody had ever seen a line of such structures and powers in the British tongue. One might argue that his novel opened the doors for more daring US writers to explore new languages and new ways of writing, and left behind a more conventional past mainly ruled by British writers such as Wordsworth, Tennyson and Browning.
D.H. Lawrence discussed Whitman's novel later in his classical studies of American literature. There were no British engineers, no French. Perhaps this is the textbook that has created a new way of using the language. Come, said my soul, important poems: With its long and bold introduction by Whitman, The Lives of Grass is the most powerful volume of modern poetry.

This long lyric by American-born but British-based writer Eliot was devoted to Ezra Pound, who promoted young authors and their modern innovation at the age. Important poems: philosophic, abstracted, difficult, mysterious - but there is no doubt that the 72 verses in the volume are as formidable a début as you may find it - Stevens was 44 years old when it was out.
One of the lawyers of insurances all his lifetime, he was writing poetry on little notes at work after he had thought them up on his daily hikes. To him, fantasy, which works through poetry, "gives the highest fictional value to life," and he tried to substitute poetic pictures and notions for the god of religions.
Reading some of his harmony poetry, I am enthusiastic about the sound and expression. You travel to places where no other poetry ever tries to understand it, if I come back is another thing!

The long phrases are split into ordered samples, but the vocabulary is refined, the pronunciation accurate, and the end results are often a wonderful look at the poetry, after a long, marauding ascent!

Important poems: Longston Hughes drafted on jazzm, the blue and the usual talk to mirror the lives of the "baser people, the so-called cronies? ", which means the impoverished dark people.

Important poems: Before he was twenty years old, Dylan Thomas had composed many of his most celebrated poetry, a considerable work. The topics of epoch, romance, childhood experience, deaths and nature are represented by a combination of narrow meters, elaborate rimes and abundant textures.

Important poems: Hughes' poetry is strongly influenced by people' s natural and profound emotive interrelations. He' s a sensible predator who enjoys the intuition of his own stone pit and yet observes it with a keen sense like no other modern poets.
