15 authors who have influenced me

This was one of those notes on facebook that I decided was worth doing, but maybe on my blog rather than on the socialnetwork. The Invitation Guidelines: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen authors (poets included) who’ve influenced you and that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.

1. Ray Bradbury
2. Charles Wright
3. The authors of the poetry (Psalms, Ecclesiastes, etc) in the Bible (David & others)
4. Louise Gluck–both through her writing and her teaching!
5. Flannery O’Connor
6. C.D. Wright
7. Adrienne Rich
8. Ernest Hemingway
9. Sylvia Plath
10. Seamus Heaney
11. James Wright
12. the Brothers Grimm
13. Rainer Marie Rilke
14. Pablo Neruda
15. Ellen Bryant Voigt
