At our (state) high school in the 1950's we had a keen young English teacher (later an Anglican priest) who introduced me to G M Hopkins whom I still love. A later university lecturer (not a Christian) introduced me to T S Eliot and Donne. Both are still part of my readings and reflections.

I'm not a major Blake fan--I like the Tyger poem and a few of the others, but I'd strongly recommend people not waste their time with his longer poetry. He was trying to set up a mythology of his own which is near incomprehensible, gives off creepy vibes, and is as boring as hell IMHO. So I'd suggest sticking to the short poems.
