Writer-picking help needed

OK, here's the deal: for my English class, I have to write a very very long paper on the style of one of the following writers. The problem is that you're assigned your writer by a lottery, and if you get a low lottery number you have to settle for a writer you didn't want.

I don't want to get stuck picking from a bunch of writers I know nothing about, so I'd love it if you guys could give me some recommendations. Who on this list would you recommend?

Also: I'm bad at analyzing poetry so I really really don't want to do my report on a poet. I've eliminated a few known poets from the list, but if there are any left on here that you know are poets, warn me! Heh.

It'll only take a minute to help me out!
