The Faber poetry list, originally founded in the 1920s, was shaped by the taste of T. S. Eliot who was its guiding light for nearly forty years. Since the sixties, each passing decade has seen the list grow with the addition of poets who were arguably the finest of their generation. In recent years the creation of the Poet to Poet series has further broadened the scope of Faber poetry by including the work of great poets from the past selected and introduced by the contemporary poets they have inspired.

Eliot; Seamus Heaney; Thomas Hood; Gerard Manley Hopkins; A.E. Housman; Ted Hughes; Ben Jonson; John Keats; Philip Larkin; Lachlan Mackinnon; Louis MacNeice; Dorothy Molloy; Bernard O'Donoghue; Sylvia Plath; Maurice Riordan; Sam Riviere; William Shakespeare; Percy Bysshe Shelley; Stevie Smith; Stephen Spender; Wislawa Szymborska; Alfred, Lord Tennyson; Edward Thomas; Jack Underwood; Hugo Williams; William Wordsworth; and W.B.
