Five Common Mistakes That Novice Poets Make
#38
TS Eliot wrote his Four Quartets at 52. They are - for me - his best work. He lived for another two decades, but wrote nothing as good in them. He also wrote The Wasteland at 34. It was good, but not as good as what came after.
But more generally, poets are at their prime in their mid 20s to late 30s, when they've got more testosterone in their bodies. After that, it's just a lot of monotonous whingeing about how their hands are growing thin.
