Hi  Ed,

I'm currently compiling a list of poems on poems and/or poets.  Not so 
much ars poeticae, but rather, poems that specifically mention other 
poems/poets, and that are both critically and aesthetically engaging.  I 
wondered if you have any suggestions for poems about Shakespeare, Mary 
Wroth, and others. (I have Milton covered.) Obvious examples are Keats's 
sonnet on re-reading Lear, Milton's tribute to Shakespeare, and Yeats's 
"Lapis Lazuli," but there must be many others.  I'm especially 
interested in 20th century poets who critique/celebrate Shakespeare.

Thanks a lot,
Tim
