My last nomination will be to fourth Leaves of Grass. I like the fact that it's available in Librivox. I suspect that Hopkins and Keats could be available in that format too.

I'll use my last two to nominate Keats and Rime. I'm not sure what number nominations they are.

for my second nomination I'd like to throw in another title, The Withsun Weddings by Philip Larkin - this is available as an ebook, but if you happen to have the "collected poems" they are all in there.
Inkmesh.
You can get a taste of the title poem here, read by the author.

A beautifully cynical, troubled poet.

with my third nomination I'd like to support Tomas Transtromer: his collected poems are available as ebook here, perhaps they might sell to North America, too?!

Observing that I still have one nomination under the revised system I will put Whitman into the fully nominated camp.

1) I'm happy to help Keats along with a supporting vote.

2) I wouldn't mind having a go at T S Elliot. I think <i>Poems</i> is probably a reasonable collection of his work and available in the MobileRead library.

Quote:
Thomas Stearns "T. S." Eliot OM (September 26, 1888 – January 4, 1965) was a playwright, literary critic, and an important English-language poet of the 20th century.[3] Although he was born an American he moved to the United Kingdom in 1914 (at age 25) and was naturalised as a British subject in 1927 at age 39.

The poem that made his name, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock—started in 1910 and published in Chicago in 1915—is regarded as a masterpiece of the modernist movement. He followed this with what have become some of the best-known poems in the English language, including Gerontion (1920), The Waste Land (1922), The Hollow Men (1925), Ash Wednesday (1930), and Four Quartets (1945).[4] He is also known for his seven plays, particularly Murder in the Cathedral (1935). He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948.
3) For my next thrill, I'd like to add a supporting nomination for Beowulf because ... why not.

I'm not as poetry savvy as some of you probably are so I'm playing it by ear. Hope you don't mind.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think Beowulf still needs one more to become fully nominated, so here it is .

I would also like to give a vote to Keats.
EDIT: just realised that Keats is fully niminated, so I withdraw my nomination.

Nominations updated in the first post through post 28. We now have four fully nominated works and need one more.

Hi orlok, you helped it along but it still needs another vote to become fully nominated. It had three, you gave it a fourth and it needs five.

Got my 4's and 5's mixed up. Numbers, bah!

Can I fifth it as well with one of my spare nominations?
