Our readers write

André Breton considers cleaning out his library.

Welcome to 'Our readers write', where we throw out a question related to poetry and ask readers to jump up and catch it. Got a question you'd like answered? Drop it in the comments section for use in the near future.

We all have poets we love, but sometimes that love affair can be shaken when we come across something in their oeuvre that doesn't meet the quality of the rest of their work: a poem so terrible it makes us question why we read the poet at all. So, again, subjective, I know, but what do you consider to be the worst poem by your favourite poet?

  1. I've been trying to think of something to put here, but I've always felt that putting a name to 'my favourite poet' would be a terrible thing to do (although leaving it hanging isn't much good either)
