Poetry

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books on Poetry.

Poetry is a form of expression or composition of literature eliciting a desired emotion, rhythm and meaning. In opposition to strictly content, this aesthetic form of language has a particular emphasis on linguistic form and verse guiding towards an enjambment (expected/sense in dynamic) approach. Because of the lack in clarity, poetry can be easily misinterpreted or misunderstood; however, it is viewed as a literary vehicle of insight and freedom from logic. By stimulation of imagination and emotions with the use of rhythmic verses does poetry promote an escape from logic.
