The Poetry Is in the Pity
MetadataShow full item record
Poetry illuminates the thoughts and feelings of an age and culture accurately, beautifully , and effectively. I discover ed poetry's magic while searching for poems that would verify an idea sparked by my newly-obtained knowledge of modern European history . As I searched, I realized that by reading the poetry of an age and culture, one can come to understand. I, therefore, wish to present a cultural history of early twentieth-century Europe through poetry. I want to tell a story, or rather, allow the poets ,to tell their own story . My role is to bring together poets who are geographically, culturally, and often philosophically worlds apart.
