Guillaume de Machaut

1300-1373, the last great composer to also be a poet, or vice versa, because I suppose Wagner doesn't count as a 'great' poet and Nietzsche, though a tepid composer, was not a poet, either.

Can you think of any other poet/composers? I feel like more ought to be on the tip of my mind, but at the moment nothing is coming to the fore.
