Transcript of Poetry

Perhaps the oldest knows form of Poetry was the "Epic" form.

We all know Ramayana.
This Epic poem is a smriti. There are as many definitions of poetry as there are poets. What is it? Perhaps the characteristic most central
to the definition of poetry is its
unwillingness to be defined, labeled,
or nailed down.

Poetry is like painting, paint on canvas.
The only difference is that Words are
used instead of paint. It need not rhyme. It need not make sense. It need not be interesting. Not to you, anyway. But there must have been something in the poet's mind when the poem was written. And that's all that matters. What Poetry means to
me? I don't know.
I write.
I feel. Hence I write.

Sometimes it rhymes. It forms a rhythm.
Sometimes it doesn't rhyme. It still forms a rhythm.

Poetry is something new. Its feels new to me every time I try. Poetry Over Time. Epics Researchers think that poetry and poetic styling was originally developed to help storytellers, who often acted as historians, memorize their stories more easily. Verse Drama Around 1485-1660, poetry was incorporated in dramas. Adding layers of meaning to poems, became very popular. Playwrights like William Shakespeare are very well known to all of us here.
In the second half of the twentieth century verse drama fell almost completely out of fashion. The Romantic Period And so thy thoughts when thou are gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.
- P.B. Shelley Drive my dead thoughts over the universe, Like wither'd leaves, to quicken a new birth.
-P.B. Shelley Romanticism (or the Romantic era/Period) was an artistic, literary, and intellectual movement that originated in Europe toward the end of the 18th century.

Poetry in this time emphasizes feeling, intuition and imagination to a point of irrationalization. Poetry - In the Modern World. The early 20th century saw a lot of push against formal structure and style.
Poems became shorter and more concise.
Today, you can find poets and poetry of all sorts.
Many bars, cafés and schools still host poetry readings Some people also look at music as a form of poetry. Yes, how many years can a mountain exist,
Before it's washed to the sea ?

Yes, how many years can some people exist,
Before they're allowed to be free ?

Yes, how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see ?

The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind. Bob Dylan Poetry, Today. Lyric poetry is a poem used to express feelings.
Lyric poems have specific rhyming schemes and are often, but not always, set to music or a beat. And today, that is the kind of "Poetry" each one of you here listen to. Kabhi mujhe lagey ke jaise,
saara hi yeh jahaan hai jadoo
Jo hai bhi aur nahin bhi hai yeh,
fiza ghata hawa bahaarein

Mujhe kare ishaare yeh
Kaise kahoon, kahani main inki

Jo bhi main, kehna chahoon
Barbaad karein, alfaz mere.

- Irshad Kamil Dilon mein tum apni
Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum Nazar mein khwabon ki
Bijliyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum Hawa ke jhokon ke jaise
Aazad rehna sikho
Tum ek dariya ke jaise
Lehron mein behna sikho Jo apni aankhon mein
Hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum
Dilon mein tum apni
Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum A thing of beauty is a joy for ever;
Its lovliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; - John Keats Har ek lamhe se tum milo
Khole apni bhaayein
Har ek pal ek naya samha
Dekhen yeh nigahaein BIBLIOGRAPHY http://en.wikipedia.org
