Poetry for me is my way of expressing my feelings and directly or indirectly communicating what I feel says Thomas Salzano a creative writer and an inspiring poet. He says you will only develop an interest in poetry if you start reading them and try to interpret them in your own words.
As a poet, Thomas feels that sometimes the readers choose the wrong poetry and lose interest. This happens because either they go for poetry that is difficult to read and interpret as it is technical or poetry that does not suit their area of interest.
Here is a list of a few poets and their poetry that Thomas feels every reader should read once every if they don’t like poems that much:
- Robert Frost is an American poet and one of the best poems of his is “ The Road Not Taken.” It is a narrative poem with four stanzas and five lines each.
The poet talks about the choice in life with the help of 2 different roads each depicting your life situations and the final choice you make.
- William Shakespeare is one of the greatest writers and is regarded as the greatest writer in the English language.
The most talked-about work of his is “ Sonnet 18.” It’s a fourteen-line poem written in iambic pentameter.
- John Milton is one of the most famous English poets. The top poetry of his is “On His Blindness.” It’s a Petrarchan sonnet, a lyric poem with fourteen lines.
These are the top three poets and their poetry that inspired many poets like Thomas Salzano to write poetry and develop a persistent love for poetry.
