Famous Poets & Poetry: 18th Century
The 18th century was filled with many great poets and authors. It was the first time--at least first in a long period--the world started to read poets who weren't royalty or from wealthy families. This brought along more genres and more variety.
The 18th century also saw the birth of the first American poets.
