Poetry is the most compact form of literature. A poem packs all kinds of ideas, feelings and sounds into a few carefully chosen words. The look, sound and language of poetry all work together to create a total effect.
You many also hear about epic poetry , which is similar to a ballad. Epic poems are long, narrative poems celebrating the adventures and achievements of a hero... epics deal with the traditions, mythical or historical, of a nation. Example: Homer’s “The Iliad.”
I am a very special shape I have three points and three lines straight. Look through my words and you will see, the shape that I am meant to be. I'm just not words caught in a tangle. Look close to see a small triangle. My angles add to one hundred and eighty degrees, you learn this at school with your abc's. Practice your maths and you will see, some other fine examples of me.
Poems are meant to be read aloud. Therefore, poets choose and arrange words to create the sounds they want the listener to hear. There are many techniques that poets can use to achieve different sounds.
