Poetry (Literature)

Poetry Definition:
  • Poetry is more than just rhyming words.
  • Poetry doesn't even have to rhyme as the main ingredients are movement & sound.
  • Movement & sound along with feeling are what make poetry.
Poetry General Facts:
  • Poetry is an art form.
  • It is something that can not be judged on superficial appearances.
  • Poetry is first and foremost about expression.
  • The expression in poetry describes the way we feel about a certain subject through imagery & other senses.
  • The emotion in the poem is what brings it to life - 'life through words'.
  • Without emotion the words are simply prose.
  • Because of the emotional component, poetry will make us have many feelings such as - happy or sad, loving or broken hearted, mad or gleeful.
  • Our poetry is our life, not what someone tells us is so.
  • The use of rhyming is not always good as it limits many words that could give flow to the poem, and flow should take preference to rhyme.
  • There are around 51 forms of poetry.
