Abrazando Esperanzas

Need more poetry in my life – How’bout some recommendations?

Last year I tried to read mostly fiction – that beside school assigned books. I was somewhat successful, but there was some non-fiction that made it way to my reading pile.

This year I would like to get into poetry. I read quite a bit of Latin American poetry in the 90’s. Finding then a soul companion in Fr. Ernesto Cardenal.

So what are your recommendations?


  1. Robert Frost and Rilke and John Donne … quite the combo there 🙂

  2. You can never go wrong with Wendell Berry and Robert Hayden!

  3. My favorite poet is Jim Morrison of the doors. He wrote under James Douglas Morrison, An American Prayer is his best work. Jack Kerouac wrote some good beatnik poetry. My book is coming out toward the end of the year.
