Poets & Playwrights
Minifigs inspired by my favorite poets and playwrights.
About this creation
As a poet myself, I can't help but honor my favorite poets and playwrights in my "other" form of artistic expression -- as LEGO minifigs, of course! W.B. Yeats (Irish, 1865-1939) leads this all-star cast.


George Bernard Shaw:
Irish playwright, socialist, and Nobel laureate. 1856-1950.







Geoffrey Chaucer:
English writer, poet, Comptroller of the Custom and Subsidy of Wool, blogger. Born ca. 1343, died in 1400.

This minifig accompanied me to Chaucer's tomb in Westminster Abbey. Sadly, photography was not allowed.


T.S. Eliot:
Poet, critic, expatriate American, naturalized Englishman. 1888-1965.

Another traveling companion to his own grave in Poets' Corner at Westminster.




John Gower:
English poet, friend of Chaucer, blogger, wanker. Born ca. 1330, died in 1408.






Richard Hugo:
American poet, novelist, and teacher. 1923-1982.







Sylvia Plath:
American poet, novelist, essayist. 1932-1963.







Ezra Pound:
American poet, critic, economist, musician, Fascist sympathizer. 1885-1972.






Theodore Roethke:
American poet and teacher. 1908-1963.







Anne Sexton:
American poet and writer. 1928-1974.







William Stafford:
American poet, critic, and pacifist. 1914-1993.







Gertrude Stein:
American writer, poet, playwright, feminist. 1874-1946.







David Wagoner:
American poet and teacher. A personal mentor and influence.

It's nice to see the fusion of poetry and literature with legos... there are some of these writers I hadn't heard of, but it was indeed surprising to find such great authors as Shaw and Chaucer here (about 3-4 years ago, the best English teacher I ever had (BTW, an Irish woman) indirectly showed me bits of Shaw, and I found his poetry touching to say the least; also, friday the 30th January I had an exam on Medieval English Literature, during which course I have grown quite fond of the fine irony in the Canterbury Tales as a whole), among others. Inspiringly good and pretty accurate as well.

Boy, I think the poets scared everybody away. I know the last poetry I used to like was the beat poetry I used to hear back in the mid-80's. Titles like Shelter Cat Rap. Not music, pure beat. It wasn't always the best poetry but the energy and surroundings made it fun. I can't read poetry and like it but listening to it is different. more nice guys, maybe they could get jobs in other mocs. see ya. garth
