I've studied T.S. Eliot but he's too hard to be my favorite. I need to have several reference books by my side as I navigate his works.

I've studied Shakespeare but I have a problem with iamibic pentameter, and the sonnets are in a very difficult format for me. He's a genius, unless you go with T.S. Eliot's view and consider "Hamlet" to be an artistic failure. (I don't, but still ...)

Wallace Stevens simply baffles me. I'm just not up to the task.

Can I go with Byron? Yeah, I'm going with Lord Byron, the rock star of his era.

Today,

Book: Bleak House. Human lives ruined by the Chancery Court and an irrational, inefficient, inconsistent legal regime. Spontaneous human combustion. Much, much more.

Song: Just My Imagination, Smokey Robinson

Album: L'incoronazione di Poppea, almost any recording

Movie: Manchurian Candidate, 1962 version. The garden club scene cannot be improved on.

Poet: Emily Dickinson, "Tell the truth, but tell it slant."
