quietude or post-avant [US]:
As for whether you're quietude or post-avant, Laurel Snyder, a simple test is whether you prefer

Norman Dubie, C.K. Williams, Donald Hall, Mary Oliver, Sandra Gilbert, James Dickey, Howard Moss, Robert Pinsky, Norman Finklestein, Charles Wright, Charles Simic...

or

Clark Coolidge, Susan Howe, Tony Towle, Bernadette Mayer, Ronald Johnson, Jess Mynes, Nada Gordon, Lisa Jarnot...

Most people, if they've read contemporary poetry at all, will have a strong inclination toward one or the other side. If you like poets on both lists equally, then you are a true eclectic. There is no cure, unfortunately. The symptoms can be managed to maintain a good quality of life.

What if you prefer none of the poets on either list?

These strike me less as lists of poets than as lists of English Department faculty members. No offense intended here.

My list of poets whose work I strongly prefer would include the following: Thomas McGrath, Sharon Doubiago, Federico Garcia Lorca, Kenneth Rexroth, Tu Fu, Sappho, Tomas Transtromer, Anuradha Mahapatra, Nancy Morejon, Rene Depestre, Yosano Akiko, Miroslav Holub, Etheridge Knight, Joy Harjo, Ibn Hazm, Dafydd ap Gwylym, Zoe Anglesey, Paul Eluard, Pablo Neruda, Yannis Ritsos...
