Description

Welcome to The Once Lost Wanderer. The name is derived from two poems: Amazing Grace by reformed slave trader John Newton, and All That is Gold Does Not Glitter by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Poetry

Obviously, this is not a list of books or titles, but of poets published in various collections and titles. For each author, I’ll attempt to find their most emblematic or acclaimed poem or collection. I’m open to suggestions on that point.

On this list, William Shakespeare is conspicuous by absence, but remain calm. I have not forgotten the Bard. He has his own page – HERE.

  1. This is a very long list. Just start with Kipling and Tennyson as most of the others pale by comparison. Keats is very evocative as well. No Shakespeare? His sonnets are marvels even though most were not written for a woman.

    1. Thanks for the recs. Yeah this list is just a giant TBR. I will not get to them all in my lifetime. I have an entire separate page for Shakespeare. That, I might be able to get through.
