This assignment prompted me to open a large Anthology of American poetry in an attempt to throughly answer this question. After skimming over many different poets I found I enjoy the work Emily Dickinson the most. Her poems are wonderful observations of the world around her and of her own feelings. She is honest yet her honesty is expressed through beautiful language making it a pleasure to see the world through her eyes. I feel, however, that my limited knowledge of poetry is hindering response and therefore I plan to keep searching. One thing I do know is that my appreciation of poetry is contingent upon my mood so this could be a never ending search.
