  • 1. CONCRETE POETRYH. Engl. IKoperDec. 2011
  • 2. “Concrete poetry is sometimes called picture poetry or shape poetry. It combines poeticwriting and drawing. The form that the poem is written in mirrors the topic of the poem.There are three traditional ways this is down: (1) the poem can follow the outline of theobject, (2) the poem can fill a shape that is the subject of the poem, or (3) the poem canuse the way words are written on the page to form an image.”http://homepage.mac.com/mseffie/assignments/poem-a-day/10.html
  • 3. 3Concrete Poem• This form of poetry has been around sincethe 1500s. It was originally called “PatternPoetry” or “Shape Poetry.”• The term “Concrete Poem” was coined in the1950s.• Present an idea graphically by using theletters and/or words to create a picture

  • 5. 5Form• If you remove the form of the poem, you weaken thepoem.• In some (though not all) Concrete Poems, the formcontains so much significant meaning of the poem that,if you remove the form of the poem, you destroy thepoem.• The arrangement of letters and words creates animage that offers the meaning visually.• The white space of the page can be a significant part ofthe poem.• The physical arrangement in a Concrete Poem canprovide a cohesion that the actual words lack. Thisallows a poem to ignore standard syntax, and logicalsequencing.
