What exactly is poetry?

In the next section of my blog, we will be attempting to determine what exactly is poetry and looking at the way society and  views it versus how we, as individuals, view it. 

The dictionary describes Poetry: the art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts.

Although this is what poetry is suppose to mean.  I wanted to try to ask random students what they believed poetry was and how it means.  Theses were my responses:

  • Student 1: The expressing of emotions or feelings through words
  • Student 2: Being able to express oneself without boundaries
