Poetry and It's Appreciation
Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
Poetry analysis is the process of investigating a poem's form, content, and history in an informed way, with the aim of heightening one's own and others' understanding and appreciation of the work. The words poem and poetry derive from the Greek poiēma (to make) and poieo (to create). That is, a poem is a made thing : a creation; an artefact. One might think of a poem as, in the words of William Carlos Williams , a "machine made of words". Machines produce some effect, or do some work. They do whatever they are designed to do.
