* Similar to the above Creator/WilliamButlerYeats is well known across the English speaking world, but in America at least ''TheSecondComing'' is incredibly famous and endlessly referenced in popular culture. Irish people are often bemused by this as in his own country ''The Second Coming'' is ''not'' considered any more notable than any of Yeats' other poems - ''less'' so in fact as poems like ''Easter 1916'' have a political context that make them much more likely to be taught in schools and others like ''Sailing to Byzantium'' are considered more beautiful.

* WilliamShakespeare's sonnets are popular everywhere. But '''which one''' is the most popular or most well-known? "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" Not a chance! Czechs will invariably name '''Sonnet 66''' as their absolute favourite, although it might mean it's the only one they know, but still. This sonnet has been translated gazillion times, and it includes both brilliant published versions and fan-fic-like translations of various quality. One musician wrote a melody and has a song version of it. Czech Professors of English Literature give lectures just about this single sonnet, or if it's about Shakespeare's sonnets in general, there is always a special discussion of Sonnet 66. It keeps receiving {{Shout Out}}s in novels and theatrical performances. Czechs sure do love their CrapsackWorld. Possibly due to similar reasons, it was also quite popular with the Soviet intelligentsia.

* Omar Khayyám is by far the best-known Persian poet in the English-speaking world, due to Edward Fitzgerald's famous translation of his Rubáiyát. Although he's also well-liked in Iran, the likes of Ferdowsi, Sa'di, Hafiz and Rumi are usually considered superior, although almost unknown in the West. Most of them were very well-known in France and Germany during the 18th and 19th century, and inspired several German poets. But since English translations couldn't really carry on, these poets were forgotten after a while.

* Creator/LordByron. He ''was'' rather popular in Britain in his lifetime, but his fame always had a scandalous tinge to it, and his work was often dismissed as being more [[RefugeInAudacity in-your-face provocative]] than good. In modern critical appraisals, Byron seems to be [[OvershadowedByAwesome overshadowed]] by Shelley and Keats. On the continent (especially in France and Russia), Byron was ''the'' face of English Romantic poetry and the possibly best English writer ''ever'', second to only Creator/WilliamShakespeare. To say nothing of Greece, where Byron is still literally venerated as a national hero.
