What is modern Poetry?
Blog Posted:10/31/2013 11:17:00 PM
Poetry has undergone great transformations and in this “era of surveillance” where exploitations, accusations and everything happens under light, poetry needs a new definition.The truth is nature is spoiled badly and the individuals are no peaceful. Inner fights and external wars are in abundance. In such a world modern poetry needs a new definition.
In my presumption the modern poet could be one who strikes the right balance to benefit him, society and the poetry community. As the society runs for money, we do have to change and adopt all ways to entertain and keep the crowd following or else poets will be ostracized and branded as insensitive.
Not necessarily nature, love, romance, values ,virtues, truth and reality but also awareness, good causes, whistle blowing should be considered by way of new genres or the old ones to make people happy and aware.
I believe in Poetry Soup we have a variety of poets specialized in specific genres and also some capable to perform in all forms. Ultimately Soupers are a different kind who is for the welfare of the poetic community. Even though conflict of interest arises it is being sorted out amicably.
A “GREAT STAR” is “POETRY SOUP”
