  • What Is Poetry Expression Of Emotion
    419 words
    According to Webster's Dictionary, poetry is defined as "writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience in language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound, and rhythm." While this is the technical definition of poetry many writers attempted to further describe what poetry is. There are many contradicting views and no one can agree what is the essence of poetry. Some poets think that poetry is the expression of emotions and r...
  • Social Act Poetry Poem One
    1,387 words
    Is poetry a social act rather than an isolated object? Is poetry meant to be shared with others, or meant for the individual? Personally I can think of examples that would justify both of these statements. Poetry itself is almost impossible to define but to describe a poem, as a "social act" or an "isolated object" doesn't necessarily mean that the next poem is. There are however cases that would suggest that poetry does indeed lean more towards the "social act" description allotted by this part...

    Youth and Poetry Poetry by definition is the art of writing that shows more imagination and deep feeling that ordinary speech. Poetry is a set of sensual words with deep meaning, but for some reason young people do not appreciate it. Hugh Maclennan states, 'For without poetry these youths were poor.' ; He was referring to a group of teenagers he encountered, but this statement can be directed to the majority of youths today. Poetry is dead in our lives, and without knowing what it is, we will no...

    Laura (Riding) Jackson's poetry and criticism are intricately linked in their in query into the paradoxical nature of human expression and feeling. After "practicing" poetry from the early 1920 s to 1938, she renounced poetry saying that its no longer served as a means of expressing the modern word / world . Poetry bears in itself the message that it is the destiny of human beings to speak the meaning of being, but it nurses it in itself as in a sacred apartness, not to be translated into the la...

  • The Evolution Of British Poetry

    The Evolution of British Poetry Throughout the literary history of the Renaissance, a gradual but dramatic change in the poetic style of the time becomes apparent. From one contribution to another, the rebellion between the poetic styles is evident. Early Elizabethan and Jacobean poetry demonstrates the love that mankind shares and the universal truths that the people of that time held so dear. On through the neoclassical and romantic eras, the style becomes centered on personal delight and warm...
  • Plato On Poetry Books To Read
    490 words
    I thought this reading was relatively difficult to follow. The first part went into explicit detail. This seemed unnecessary, because Havelock could have explained his logic with less detail. The second part was much easier to follow, but nonetheless was still relatively difficult. Again Havelock went into great detail when it was unnecessary. I generally agreed with Havelock's argument. Although, I found that I did not completely understand the reading until the final pages. These pages had so...

One reason fiction is easier to understand and discuss is that it has a plot, setting, a cast of characters, and a theme. Most ficti...
  • Dose Poetry Matter Lewis Carroll
    598 words
    Does Poetry Matter To me poetry does not matter. I do not like poetry because a poem is just a passage that contains a hidden meaning and I can never figure out what a poem is about. If poetry was not around then authors would just come out and say what they wanted to say. Their thoughts would not get confused and people would not miss the meaning that the author is trying to get across. Poetry is just an art form like painting, music, sculpting, and writing. You could take away any art form an...

  • Emily Dickinson I Dwell In Possibility 657

    Emily Dickinson refused to conform to the standards which were set forth for her by her peers. This was seen not just in her poetry, but also in the ways in which she chose to live her life. It seems as though Emily saw standards as rules, rules which she would reject in the greatest degree possible. Emily, though, was not always so opposed to society. In fact, Emily Dickinson was once considered to be a high-spirited and energetic young woman until she began to withdraw from society in 1850. T...

The practice of poetry is governed by rules; these rules can be formulated and taught. Poetry is rationally comprehensible.

Aristotle agrees with Plato that epic poetry, tragedy and comedy are es...
