    Would I get away with 3 poets michaels

    Durcan, Yeats and TS Eliot

    I looked over all poets from 2005-2015 and at least 2 male poets come up each year and in some cases three come up. Is it a good idea?

      You are taking a risk. I think we will see a lot of women this year on the paper. I think Yeats is unlikely and who knows with eliot. Durcan likely but God knows what kind of question. Would you study one more to be safe???

      Marie. No logic in your point whatsoever. What if only one woman appears and it is neither of those or there could be two and still neither of those.
