Powells is having a Poetry Madness "best poet" bracketed competition: http://www.powells.com/poetrymadness

I'm disappointed to see Robinson Jeffers going up against Ginsburg. I like Jeffers better, but Ginsburg has huge name recognition.

ee cummings vs Walt Whitman? I guess i'll vote for ee cummings. But. But.

I do like the disclaimer:
Note to Shakespeare, Philip Larkin, or [insert your favorite poet here] fans: If your favorite poet is better than one or more included here, you're probably right. We made a glaring error, and we are properly embarrassed. Sadly, we are human, and this is just for fun. However, if you would still like to let us know, please email us at poeticjustice@powells.com. Thanks for your attention and for your passion for poetry.
