Writing Poetry - The Aims
Writing Poetry is is a wonderful outlet for expressing ideas. Poetry can be used to convey ideas, information and feelings but, above all, it is a great means of entertainment. The elements to include are imagination and imagery and conveying these ideas by writing poetry which makes good use of rhythm, rhyme, tone and using the English language and its various means to enhance your work. The two most popular devices to enable you to do this when writing poetry is the use of metaphors (A figure of speech in which two things are compared like "the world's a stage") and Similes (A figure of speech in which two things are compared using the word "like" or "as.") The use of such devices when writing poetry allows the writer the broaden the images and meanings of everyday terms so that they take on a new dimension.
