Can Poetry Matter?

来源:贴心姐妹网   更新:2016-09-08 05:49:34   作者:Anna Yin(星子安娜)
Can Poetry Matter?

 

Can Poetry Matter? Once it was a very hot topic in USA raised by Dana Gioia (now State of California Poet Laureate) in 1991 (a video on April, 2016).


Now read what Canadian poets say:


Professor at University of Toronto, Richard Greene

I am like a fish asked to discuss water.


Parliamentary Poet Laureate of Canada,  George Elliott Clarke

It is organic, physical, and as instinctive to human beings as is breathing. When I am depressed or when I am gay, I want words to augment my feelings. I want

words that help me cry or make me laugh. So, poetry is irrepressible.


First Poet Laureate of Edmonton, Alberta, Alice Major

Poetry matters because language is our human birthright. We carefully learn its sounds and rhythms as infants, we play with it all the time — and then we forget how to play. But it is the serious playfulness of poems that makes words matter, makes them resonate and stick with us. When we need to say important things, we turn to poetry.


Rebecca Anne Banks: Yes, poetry matters. The Prime Minister says so.
