I haven't even read much poetry since it's a more recent interest, and I've been busy. I've read some, and so far I like Dante Basco and Edgar Alan Poe.
I need to find a good introduction to poetry. I'm not really one for rhymes or having to follow strict rules. I just want to write about ideas that I have.
So is there a type of poetry that doesn't incorporate strict rules? It can have some. Basically, I just don't want anything too difficult that I'll just mess up.
Are there any particular books on writing poetry that you can recommend?
