by Alexander Pope - J. B. Smith & co.
This volume comprises the works of Alexander Pope. It includes The Rape of the Lock, The Dunciad as well as several epitaphs, essays and epistles. It also contains poems that Pope wrote in his youth, which imitate the styles of several poets.
by Charles Baudelaire - Project Gutenberg
As you read these stark and beautiful poems you may see into the tortured psyche of the poet who wrote them. The poems themselves cover many subjects in traditional symbolist style, from cats to gypsies to corpses to a whole section on wine.
by Walt Whitman
Walt Whitman created a daringly new kind of poetry that became a major force in world literature. First published in 1855 with only twelve poems, it was greeted as the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet contributed.
