Modern Poetry

Hello!

Our teacher gave us a hometask to find any American poet's poem and "explain" it. So I decided to see last winners of Pulitzer Prize.I found Sharon Olds and her "Satana said" (She got prize for other poem , but it was first one I found). I was shocked. It's so loathsome and stupid poem. It was an epatage ,but ugly and nonsencical one.Certainly , I forgot my idea about modern poems and chose Robert Frost's very beautiful old-school poem. 

What do you think about modern poetry? Can you advice me any good example?

Robert Frost is one of the few American poets that I know. When you mention poetry, I don't think of the USA. However that is despite the fact that I have seen panel discussions with them. I think that it is because so many other things about the US are seen.

 

Look at this article for more poets
