Poetry

poetry benchWhy is Poetry so important and essential to a culture? There are various factors, but the most apparent one is that poetry is a way to see a culture’s history and people through the lens of regular citizens who live the everyday life. Poetry can capture many things in a culture such as a people’s struggle, love, relationships, their dismiss of life, or their awe of nature. The list is endless. In addition, poetry provides a way for ALL people to engage in the current political climate of their country or locality, thus providing great literature for all those that may want to understand a particular time and place and/or government and people. It becomes a glimpse into the past and also the potential future.

For this reason we are providing our readers with insight into how poetry may have begun in Latin Countries throughout the world. Our intent is to keep providing our readers with more information to create more understanding of these great literature works and art. Eventually we will begin to showcase more current poets throughout the world and the United States so stay tuned.
