Are you a poetry lover? Or simply hungry for a bit of culture? Poetry is one of the oldest known forms of art and entertainment; poetry as an art form may predate literacy. Many ancient works, from appear to have been composed in poetic form to aid memorization and oral transmission, in prehistoric and ancient societies. Poetry appears among the earliest records of most literate cultures, with poetic fragments found on early monoliths, runestones and stelae. Modern poetry hearkens back to these ancient roots as an art form accessible to all.
