#TPQ5: C.M. KATE FAULKNER

Stilt Jack – John Thompson

John Thompson Introduced me to the gazal form; truly astonishing images.

Collected Poems – James Schuyler

The poem “this Dark Apartment” is a perfect poem.

Collected Poems – Jack Gilbert

More than any other poet, Gilbert embodies emotion with the most beautiful language.

Geography III – Elizabeth Bishop

All the poems in this book, but “one art” is a true masterpiece.

The Weight of Oranges – Anne Michaels

This was the first Canadian poetry I ever fell in love with.
