1. John Keats
A romantic poet who died tragically young in Rome before he had the chance to do it with his eternal love, Fanny Brawne. Swoon.
2. W. B. Yeats
Who doesn't love a hot older daddy in a bow tie and a monocle?
3. Rupert Brooke
Yeats once called WWI poet Brooke "the handsomest young man in England" and even Virgina Woolf supposedly bragged in one of her many exchanges with Vita Sackville-West that she'd gone skinny-dipping with him. We'd brag too! Damn.
4. Lord Byron
Lord Byron was born with a club foot and was pretty bummed about this through much of his early adulthood, but, otherwise, he really hit the genetic jackpot! He looks like Clive Owen.
5. Anne Sexton.
Sexton really knew her way around a sultry cigarette-in-hand pose.
6. Diane Di Prima
Bad-ass topless beat poet. Need we say more?
7. Christina Rossetti
Lovely and a fan of wombats.
We love the way you activate your hips and push your prose out, Tupac.
9. Langston Hughes
Never underestimate the power of a tiny mustache and a striped t-shirt.
10. Brenda Shaughnessy
More like Brenda Hotessy.
11. Edna St. Vincent Millay
More like Edna St. Vincent MilLAY.
12. Alex Dimitrov
This just isn't fair.
13. William Carlos Williams
This is just to say
can get it
William Carlos Williams.
14. Emily Dickinson
How are we just now figuring out that Emily Dickinson bore a resemblance to Kim Kardashian?
15. John Donne
Dude can pull off a goatee and is the writer of one of the the hottest puns ever about secret marriage and jail time. He also once wrote a poem that may or may not have been about doing it with Jesus. Freaky deaky!
16. Siegfried Sassoon
A hot queer WWI poet with what has got to be the gayest name in literature. What's not to love?
17. Robert Graves
Call the doctor, someone has a grave(s) case of smokin' hotness!
18. Jack Kerouac
There aren't enough eye rolls in the world for teenage boys who think On the Road is just the greatest, but, damn, Jack. Lookin' good.
19. Sylvia Plath
New England party girl hotness at its best.
20. Mary Robinson
You can leave your hat on.
