Somesuch For The Weekdone

by ratty

Since early history, when man first developed his ability to communicate, poetry arose. Unable to be recorded, this was destined to be lost to us.

However, with the introduction of the written word, poetry was able to be penned and saved for posterity.

Since such time, we have had the privilege of reading the works of great authors from the distant past and those from more recent times, (passim electi) Henry Longfellow, Guy de Maupassant, Elizabeth Browning, Byron, Kipling.

Whilst fortunate to have access to these works, we have to ask ourselves if we are truly interpreting them in a manner that was the author’s intent.

We can only imagine if a particular word was intended to be pronounced with emotion. The same applies to the intervals between words or phrases, lengthened or shortened for emphasis

However, we are now able to remove this burden from thoseĀ  wishing to follow and understand the prose of the 20th and 21st centuries, and those still yet to come.

I am, of course, referring to the emergence of the modern poet, the singer/songwriter.

What is music, if not a play on emotion. Are not lyrics poetic verse ?
