"Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry." If you are someone who dislikes poetry, because you think they're boring stanzas to be analyzed and you have to write essays on it, you are wrong. They are not always that mechanical or serious. If you hate that poetry book from the "Dead Poets Society" movie and despise that weird graph, I assure you, we are on the same boat. If you love romantic gorgeous writing, stunning lyrics, and you're all about the feeling - I have feeling that you might love the books on this list.
