10 best American poems?

Jay Parini recently posted an article to The Guardian's book blog listing his picks for the 10 best American poems of all time. Yes, The Guardian is a British paper, and yes the task of picking only 10 poems for this list seems a bit of a fool's errand, but the list is definitely worth a look, if only for the opportunity to review some classic poems you probably haven't read since you were last in an English lit class. The list includes links to the text of the poems. Click here to check the list of poems, and here to learn more about Jay Parini. April is National Poetry Month, so this is a good time of the year to be compiling your own list of favorite poems.
