Part 2. Project 3. Changing Face of Poetry

The Changing Face of Poetry

I’ve never been a fan of poetry, so I find answering the question of whether I prefer the modernist or postmodernist forms quite hard to answer. In school we were made to read a set list of poems and then analyse them to such an extent that all enjoyment was sucked from the exercise and we all groaned at the mere mention of ‘Poetry Lesson’. I think the only poetry I’ve looked at willingly since then has been the wording of ‘The Gruffalo’!

  From the example of a fractured poem that the textbook gave me and the description of it as ‘downbeat, austere and gloomy’, I do not believe that I would be a fan of the modernist style.
