Which Famous Modern American Poet Are You?

You are Wallace Stevens
You are Wallace Stevens. You love everything,
especially the sound of things. Too bad you
are so obscure that at times even you don't
understand what the hell you have written.

I tried to warn you over at C. Dale's blog... but it's too late! I can't help it!

Dear Poet,

Congratulations! You have been selected as one of the founding members of the We Are All Wallace Literary Movement!

This is not an honor to be taken lightly, PARKER PEREIRERIA. Many individuals have been denied membership; some are too eager, some are too green, and others (of course) are alarmingly comprehendible.

But not you, PARKER PEREIRERIA. You are lovely and, if we might be so bold, deliciously opaque.

So, welcome!

Enclosed with this invitation is a(n) SASE. At your leisure, please send us the first of three easy installments of $49.95. You'll begin receiving our newsletter as soon as the check or money order reaches us.

And if you act soon, we'll include -- as a free gift to you -- this wonderful new jar!

We'll be eagerly anticipating your response, PARKER. And again: congratulations!


Sincerely,

A. J. Patrick Liszkiewicz

Geez. First, Yoda. Then Shelley. This one tells me I'm Johm Ashbery:

You are John Ashbery. People love your work but have no idea why, really. You are respected by all kinds of scholars and poets. Even artists like you.

I feel so out of step.

I took this test three times, and I came out Ashbery (?!!), Stevens, and then Plath. I guess I'm happiest with Plath because she looks best in a bikini, and it is swimsuit season...

Hi Rebecca, Jeannine: I wish I knew who was designing these: they are just a hoot.
