What is Poetry?

What is Poetry?

Meaning of the word Poetry:

Poetry is a
word of Greek origin. It comes from a verb with means “to
make, to create”. A poem is “something made or created”. The
poet is the creator and language is the material out of
which s/he creates his/her work of art.


The precise origins of poetry are unknown. It is a very
ancient art which was born as an oral form and accompanied
by simple music and dance. it expressed what people regarded
as meaningful and memorable in their lives: natural
disaster, births and deaths, brave actions, dangerous
enemies, battles, etc.

It was often part of religious rites. Poets and listeners
enjoyed playing with words, choosing and arranging them to
produce music and meaning

What a poem is:

Today poems exist in printed form, but the careful choice
and arrangement of words still account for the unique
quality of poetry.

Like other literary works poetry is made up of words. But
what is special about poetry? How is reading poetry
different from reading prose? A good start to answering the
question is to consider what poetry is concerned with:

A poem is a self-contained text, which makes sense as it
stands. It differs from prose most obviously because it is
written in lines whose length is decided by the author, not
the printer.

How the poem looks on the page, its visual
, is as important as its sound
quality. A poem makes intense use of
which results in a fare greater concentration of meaning
than is commonly found in prose.

Guidelines for reading Poetry:

In approaching a poem, you can ask the text some simple
questions which should help you to understand it:

- What is the poem about?

- Who is the voice speaking in the poem?

- To whom is the poem addressed?

- How is the poem written?

- Why has the poem been written?

Then… just enjoy it:)

Emily Dickinson – A light exists in Spring

A light exists in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period.
When March is scarcely here

A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.

It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me.

Then, as horizons step,
Or noons report away,
Without the formula of sound,
It passes, and we stay:

A quality of loss
Affecting our content,
As trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a sacrament.
