This is a little ironic, because in real life people always find it harder to tell others what they think. I believe that writing down your deepest emotions and having someone read it is much easier than telling them in person. In the end I think that my feelings towards poetry are much different now. I still feel the same way about some parts of poetry, but not all. I now have greater appreciation for poetry and poets.

I enjoyed doing this project and I look forward to do similar assignments along the way. This was a fun project for me to do. As soon as I finished my composition, I had the desire to write more. I did not think I would enjoy writing a poem because I thought I could not imagine certain things and write it down.
Why poetry is so important Poetry depends on the writers’ awareness, experiences, and observations, so everyone has the credentials needed to create poems.

Some people just can’t see language as a work of art and graceful in itself. But all of these things are what makes poetry pleasurable for me.
There’s always more time that can be devoted to understanding a poem. There is also a multitude of research on poetry that a reader could use in order to better understand it, just as I would have been lost without a dictionary. Sometimes there is more inside knowledge that a reader would have never known unless they looked it up. Still, it depends on the reader, and the poem they are reading as to whether or not they’ll go beyond their own understanding in search of others’. Understanding poetry is a difficult task, but that does not mean it cannot be done.

In fact, I have seen much to contradict my assertion. Helen Vendler notes that most readers, guided by the beginning of the sonnet, misinterpret it.
Moreover, it also applies to the secondary school’s education system that students only learn through repeatedly memorizing by heart, without thorough understanding. In fact, this poem sheds some light on how we see things; thus, interpret things, introducing the importance of experience.” (Yau) In other words, the words used by the poet are very powerful to give a vivid imagery of the poem to the readers which persuade them for the deep interpretation of this poem.

No two people will ever feel the exact same way about a certain poem. When I read the criticisms I disagreed with practically every single one. I don't know why one persons' opinion of a poem is so important that it is published. It makes reading poetry seem more like a chore and makes it hard for me to enjoy. If I read poetry it's because it has touched me in one way or another.
Many people while reading poems take the blunt force of what is being said word by word, but that is where people go wrong. Poetry is deep and meaningful pieces of literature making understanding poems very challenging for some people. The most misunderstood poem ever written would have to be Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken” mainly because people seem to be individualized and not read into the irony Robert Frost is telling. Being able to go deeper into your own thoughts and thinking outside of the box to find the true meaning of what is being said is how you figure out what the authors are trying to say. What seems like a straight forward poem that we constantly hear people saying “take the road less traveled” really takes on a whole
Poetry can be single out most of the time from the type of style. Which is the language that is meant to carry out the poetry in a vaster and less summarized way. Normally using more comprehensive practical or description arrangements than poetry carries out the language. This does not technically mean that poetry is unreasonable. It just means that poetry is frequently formed to get away from logic.
Literature is the effective form of a culture. Poetry encompasses the effectiveness of literature if it didn’t then communication teachers wouldn’t do things like have you look outside the window and write a poem about what you see in class? Poetry helps you step outside the box be more creative it allows you the chance to allow you imagination to. Also spoken word does as well which is another form of poetry that I will discuss later in the essay. Poetry was very relevant during times like ancient Greece .If you mention the names Homer, Shakespeare and Sophocles then you will notice people are mostly familiar with those poets.
