I third Shakespeare's Sonnets - always worth revisiting.

We'd need a good edition of Andrew Marvell's poems then. Is there any available? I only found an online collection.
I downloaded an edition from the University of Adelaide:

http://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au

Their editions are usually good but I haven't had time to look through it yet.

We have a little over a half day left to go, give or take. You can look at my first post of the thread date and time (which can show up adjusted to your time zone depending on your forum settings) and then add three days to figure around the time I'll end nominations. It might not be exact but that's what I aim for.

OK, since everything's fully nominated, I'll throw out another work I considered. At the eleventh hour, I'm going to nominate The Inferno by Dante. Various translations, some public domain. Or not in translation.

How about The Selected Poems of Sylvia Plath? I got this free during a sale or a pricing mistake at Amazon/Kobo last year. Can probably use the current 40% off coupon at Kobo, since it's not an agency publisher.

No worries. I've never made it clear in the first post the time of day when I aim to stop nominations, so you've given me the idea to add a line in to the first post of each month's nominations making it clearer.

I will add a nomination Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. There is a nice version in English translation here at MR LRF file.
