I switched my 13 Poets to 13 American paintings (purposely withholding artist and title) as I had recently written, Poetry: for School and Soul.

I love the British 20th century poets, especially, Larkin, Auden, and MacNeice, I was introduced to them through Alan Bennett.

And for shame! The War for Independence, or perhaps it might be catagorized as, 'That American Insurrection Business', is English history as well!
