News in Poetry The consolation of poetry
Posted by Ozymandias on Sunday, January 18, 2015 (06:58:23)

Poetry has as its purpose the evoking of emotion: it is at its most powerful and useful when it resonates with a feeling that we have within us and brings it out, to where we have to face it. Think about the songs that you’ve heard, the lyrics that most powerfully affected you, and chances are it was because, as you might have said, “it spoke to me” or it expressed “something inside of me.”Link!
