7-9 points: You should seriously consider changing careers and trying your own hand at poetry, because you clearly know your poets—and enough of their work to be able to match these texts.
4-6 points: A hearty pat on the shoulder you deserve! You must have taken your fair share of poetry classes… or perhaps you are a natural sponge that soaks up cultural knowledge without even trying.
0-3 points: You may not know these particular poems but that doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate poetry! And this list is a great place to start.
