Oh Viggo Viggo Viggo talk poetry to me please!!! Ever notice how many leading men have cleft chins? Name the poet who wrote the lines about the unself-pitying wild thing.

Your guess, Gus, is as good as mine, no wus. The poet who wrote about the wild unself-pitying thing is either D. H. Lawrence, or Kenneth Koch parodying D. H. Lawrence in his poem "I Like Rats," and I would bet my hat on it or I am not Joe King on his way back home from China and Mongolia, shadowing the adventurous couple like a playful guardian ghost who seconds "your" motion re Kirk Douglas, king of the slaves in "Spartacus," heroic rebel enjoying the charms of Jean Simmons.

I agree re: Kirk Douglas though Robert Mitchum is a close second.
