Poetry Basics Writing Tips And Tricks Advanced English Grammar

(1) Vision :

The second part of poetry is vision. A great poet is a “seer,,” i.e., a “see-er,”; one who has spiritual insight and can see truths that others do not. 

The ordinary, unimaginative woman is aware only of what she perceives by her senses and sees only the outward aspect of what she sees.

 But the poets see much more. In moments of vision, they have the power of understanding, by a kind ofthings, their qualities, instinct, , and the relations between them, which ordinary people cannot see. All real poetry is the product of vision or imagination for it is the expression of it.

(2) Refrains :

A refrain is a part of repetition. In some poems, the same line, or part of it, is repeated at the end of each verse. Such a repeated line or phrase is called a burden or refrain.

(3) Emotion :

The third essential of poetry is emotion. Ordinary prose writing (other than fiction) appeals more to the head than to heart, but the function of poetry is to touch the soul, to arouse emotion. Who can read such lines as these without emotion?

“And the stately ships go on.

To their haven under the hill;

But O for the touch of a vanished hand,

And the sound of a voice that is still!” — (Tennyson)

(4) Imagery :

The suggestion of vivid mental pictures, or images, by the skillful use of words, is called “imagery.” A poet can create or suggest beautiful sight-effects, as well as stunning sound effects, using words. Of course, this capacity is part of a poet’s gift of imagination; poetry, much more than prose, produces much of its effect by images. It often talks in pictures. The poet’s views may be drawn from the real world, or the ideal world of imagination in which he dwells.
