Senior Creative Writing Major
My favorite genre of literature is poetry. When reading a poem, the reader has to think about every single choice the poet made. Why this word over another? Why a line break here? What does this image really represent? Poetry also has a performance element, and even though I am not a performer, reading a poem sounds like listening to a song. Poetry provokes emotions I have felt throughout my life, but never could grasp.
