according to me the best poet in poetry is William Wordsworth. i consider him as the best poet as he was unique in his poems. he was born on 7th april 1770, in the lake district, England. when poets at this age wrote about ancient heroes in pompous style, he was very simple in his writing, as he focused on nature, children, the poor, common people and used very ordinary words to express his feelings. he understood poetry very well and defined it as " the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" .
