Mine would be Miguel Pinero..HANDS DOWN! This man was brilliant and his truth was the only thing he knew, so that's wat he wrote about. He had alot of "issues" and was homeless most of his writing days but his work was so powerful that he gained great respect and admiration from his peers even though he was NOTHING like the "literaries" in which he kept his company. You should all check him out. There is an awsome movie about his life called "PINERO" Benjamin Bratt plays one of his most powerfull roles, you have to see it! So who is your favorite poet and why?

Mine would be Banjo Patterson, his poetry was very real and tells a lot of the stories of our country Australia, he was a great poet and he tells the truth about Australia and he has a lot of support from his country.
