I'm putting together the official?

I'm putting together the official IQfy Anglo soulful canon. Which books other than the complete works of Keats should I include in my chart? Only give me the most soulful and vitalistic Anglo books

    "Anglo" and "soulful" don't belong in the same sentence except when "soulful" is preceded by a negation. Anglos with some modest help from the israelites have succeeded in creating the most soul-crushing, life-draining hellscape reality out of all available alternative timelines. I hate you, your nation and your shithole island so much

      There are too many possibilities. It is a highly subjective endeavor when the only criterion are "soulful" and "anglo." You need to decide this for yourself.

      The least sophisticated opinion possible, and ironically presented in an Anglo tongue.

          Keats was sincere but Romanticism was defined by a very mediated and thus somewhat false view of the world. He felt very deeply but he felt via Greece and the Middle Ages, not directly. Basically all his poetry was meta-poetic or meta-artistic.
          There's no shortage of soulful poets in England though: Blake, Cowper, Clare, Hopkins, Tennyson, Hardy, Housman, all of them wrote from the heart at least some of the time.

          Anon we are in a thread about the poet who wrote the poem that justifies that theft by its mere existence. No one in Greece was going to write that, sorry. The mandate of heaven doesn't stay in one place forever.

          The romantics are the obvious choice and as you have already mentioned Keats you may as well add Byron, Shelley, Wordsworth, and Coleridge. I myself, find Tennyson very soulful and for essays Ruskin or Clark (Kenneth Clark the Art Historian).

          >the stolen Greek statues displayed in the British Museum
          Imagine being so fricking weak you let your entire history get picked up and carried off lmao. Is this supposed to be an insult?

          Englishmen don't really exist. They're Briton, Anglo-Saxon, Norman, Black person, Pajeet mutts. God knows what else.

    Keats looks surprisingly Christopher Hitchens-like in the OP.

        Gen X worships Chris and boomers worship Peter. Neither millennials nor zoomers have ever heard of a single journalist, and none of this is relevant to the fact that Keats looks like Chris Hitchens in the OP portrait.

    Certainly nothing past the civil war, and preferably nothing past Henry VIII and his schism. So Chaucer, Malory, the Gawain Poet, Old English poetry...there's quite a lot to work with, actually.
