Poetry Stories

As William Wordsworth said, poetry is “the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.” Indeed, poetry employs rhythm, language, rhetorical devices, and figures of speech to convey an imaginative, emotional experience. Poetry contrasts with prose, or everyday writing, and often uses elaborate diction and figurative language which conceals deeper meaning.
