A. Evidence suggests that poetry has origins in ancient religious rites and magic spells involving “rhythmical, repetitive chants.”

Poetry is “written for performance by the human voice.”

Poetry uses highly concentrated and expressive language. Poetry is a combination of sound and sense—in other words, sound and meaning. Poets use sound strategies to support meaning.
Poetry is closely related to music. Much poetry has a musical quality when read aloud. Lyrics (the words) in songs often look like poetry when written on a page. The singer reproduces the structure of the poetry/lyrics when the song is sung (a repeated chorus for example).
Sound effects support and create meaning in poetry.
Poets create sound effects with a number of sound strategies:
• Rhythm: a combination of stressed and unstressed syllables measured in a basic unit of 2-3 syllables called a metrical “foot”
• Metre: a number of metrical feet in a line of poetry determines line length in a poem and thus determines the kind of metre the poem uses.
• Rhyme: end rhyme is the occurrence of identical or similar sounds at the ends of lines of poetry. The three witches’ dialogue in Shakespeare’s Macbeth is an example: “Double, double, toil and trouble;/ Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.” Rhyme can also occur at the beginnings of lines and inside lines (internal rhyme).
• Punctuation: pauses and full stops indicated by punctuation help to create poetic rhythm
• Repetition: vowel sounds (assonance) and consonant sounds (consonance). Repeated words create rhythm and are almost always connected to the poems theme.
• Pauses and silence: can be created in various ways—arrangements of words on the page, for example.
• Structure: many things contribute to the structure of poems. Line length and the length of stanzas as well as the way stanzas are arranged. A poem can have a repeated chorus also.

As well, poetry is affective. That is to say, poets design and write poetry to create strong emotion.
B. Types: Poems range from highly structured constructions to more informally written free verse (irregular line length and rhyme schemes). Poetry can be rhymed or unrhymed. It can range from the very elevated and formal in tone to poetry that is very informal. It can be sombre or parodic (parody) and comic. Poetry can follow very strict conventions (what is allowed) in terms of the number of lines per stanza (stanzas correspond to what we call paragraphs in prose writing) and the number of stanzas per poem. Sonnets, for example, are 14 line poems tightly structured according to agreed upon conventions: three four line stanzas followed by a lone couplet of two lines, as in Scott’s The Onondaga Madonna, is a common sonnet configuration. On the other hand, poems can be very unconventional—reflected in how they appear on the page—and appear to be random in structure. For an example of a poem with a seemingly random structure, see Seamus Heaney’s Digging. However, a sensitive reader will not only find structure in Heaney’s poem, but will also find that the structure of Heaney’s poem is very much connected to his themes. While not a sonnet, Garnet Ruffo’s Poem For Duncan Campbell Scott has structure, and that structure will support Ruffo’s theme(s).
