I don’t read much poetry, but I do like Poe.

I saw a documentary regarding Shakespeare’s original pronunciation and how we have lost interpretation of the double meanings he originally crafted. I couldn’t find a link to that documentary but the following Wikipedia article explains some of this:

Hahah. I love that the two examples of missed translations are both raunchy. And that’s so much of what I love about him, is how he pushed and pulled language to his whim. Thanks for sharing, I will look into that doc.

My favorite poet is Edgar Allen Poe. He is timeless and dark. I love his works.
