Great poetry has to be revealed to the poet by spiritual revelation for him to become an inspired poet. It is my firm conviction that poetry as well as music and art are a God given gift given to the artist unknown to him on many occasions that cannot be taught at Universities. Because they study and read widely; one cannot write well unless they are widely read.
Great reading and a love for words brings inspiration to the writer. Samuel Johnson was too poor to acquire a University degree yet he wrote the greatest dictionary and tons of books and papers. Until today many literary scholars believe that Shakespeare never wrote what he had written because he was not educated at a University. Shakespeare was naturally gifted and inspired by God to write what he had written.
The American poet and critic T. Eliot believed that Shakespeare never did any real thinking to write but wrote upon inspired thoughts given to him by the imperial muse of poetry. Poetry is an art, the greatest of the fine arts, and the hardest in which to reach true perfection. The true poet must be a genuine poet who has faith and confidence that his work will do something to the world and the society he lives in.
Poetry deals with the emotional intensity in man. It is a more analytical and comprehensive style in formal writing. Poetry is philosophy locked in symbolism and magnificent imagery. Sonnet By William Shakespeare No longer mourn for me when I am dead Then you shall hear the surly sullen bell Give warning to the world that I am fled From this vile world with vilest worms to dwell; Nay, if you read this line, remember not The hand that writ it; for I love you so, That I in your sweet thoughts would be forgot, If thinking on me then should make you woe.
O, if I say you look upon this verse, When I perhaps compounded am with clay, Do not so much as my poor name rehearse, But let your love even with my life decay, Lest the wise world should look into your moan, And mock you with me after I am gone.
Here I quote the poems of three world renowned poets including our own late national poet Martin Carter none of whom were university graduates yet they wrote the greatest poetry in the world. In the first poem Tagore wrote in very simple language but depicts in vivid concise imagery that death is not the end of life, he sees death as the beginning of a new divine journey into the spiritual world.
Martin Carter explores the relationship between himself the poet trapped in a political world scenario yet has a dream of exquisite beauty and perfection to change the world. Poets are important in every society because their prophetic words of wisdom will live on after they are gone. Persons wishing to respond to Rev.

Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later.
Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory. Tag Archives: 1 Chronicles August 29, By Deborah Ann. Ogling the joyful party of his neighbors playing outdoors, Paul Chowder first seeks a chance to connect with the group. But the episode further exacerbates his loneliness and marginalization.
The act turns the means of social play and exchange—the racket—into the instrument of a sinister solo and fails to generate laughter on the part of his neighbors. Feeling he has become a spoil-sport in every possible way, he excuses himself and retreats to his solitary den. There ensues from the narrative of this social failure a fanciful analysis of the rhythm of ball-games including badminton, but also tennis and ping-pong. The failure at social interaction is successfully turned into another game: play-write.
The idea of replacing a frustrating world with a more acceptable one thanks to the potentialities of fiction is not new.

The actualizing power conveyed by creativity is part of the ontological virtues of play. Man enjoys here an almost limitless creativity, he is productive and uninhibited because he is not creating within the sphere of reality. It is the very notion of play and the freedom it involves that liberates the creativity of the narrator. The character stops being played by external events prizes, rivalry, pressure from the editor only when he starts designing his own play world, setting his own rules to the game. Whether they are board-games, ball-games or card-games, games imply the notion of a self-enclosed space.
The situation is eminently metafictional. His reflexive writing foregrounds language to show that language plays us, that we are played by words and that it might prove fruitful to gain authority over its arbitrary rules. Therefore Chowder takes the liberty of altering the English lexicon, overtly distancing himself from the use of words or expressions that he deems inadequate or untrue.
They have two eyes. You have to choose one. But Chowder also invents words when an adequate one is missing. This narrator stands in some transitional realm where the old rules of the game are wearing out and need a replacement. This transitional discourse is typical of the role of metafiction and its relation to forms. The shift from established rules to newer forms concerns two aspects of the narrative. I do know that. I want you to have me. If you are there. The interaction takes many forms.

The Anthologist literalizes the effects generated by the elaborate construction of a reader persona. In this novel, readers are not mere abstracted elements of the narrative process but elements of the diegetic framework. Familiar design, I daresay. The little dude at the chalkboard?
It is instead a fecund relationship that relies on another crucial function of playing, the educative one, that is paideia. There again, the gap between an actual frustrating world and its replacement is easily discerned. The function of this mock-teaching is purely creative. His writing game generates for instance a fictitious correspondence with the powerful and influential literary editor of The New Yorker , Paul Muldoon, who also happens to be a successful poet.
Here are some fresh squibs. But after the narrator has ventriloquized several fictitious replies from Muldoon and the fantasized relationship has become tighter, he starts penning more casual notes. In other words, the narrator uses the actualizing power of literature to rewrite the world as he wishes. The play drive therefore mediates those two urges. But as the mediator of those two, play represents the zenith of human potential. There are several instances in the narrative when the self-reflexive narration becomes overtly parodic intertextuality i.
Those appearances generate what I will call playlets, short dialogues staging both the narrator and a canonic American poet. He was kind of pale, pasty looking. But moving with a methodical grace. And I said Ed.? And he looked up slowly. He nodded, cavernously.
I said, Ed Poe? And he said, Mm-hm. And then he peered closely at me. He said Paul, Paul Chowder? And I said, Yes, Ed!
