Famous lines from poetry: a quiz

There are many lines from great poetry that everybody knows – or do they? In this quiz you are given some famous lines, each with one word missing. Can you select the right one to fill the gap? Given that my educational background was in English Literature, I appreciate that what is well-known to me might not be the same for you – although I have included some examples from American as well as British poets here.

As a bonus, do you know the identity of the poet in the picture?
