    A story in the Analects recounts that Confucius' son Kong Li told the story: "The Master once stood by himself, and I hurried to seek teaching from him. What tends to occasion a new collection for you? He will give you reassurance you are not the only one who has felt like an outsider. If you are ready, here are the best poetry books about love, loss, and personal growth. Whatever time it's being written in, it has to get to know the men and women of that time. This collection covers the essential love poetry from across the globe.

    In this harsh new reality, the old poetry of love and roses doesn't seem totally real to us anymore. Jane speaks about sex. Eliot in the Four Quartets and Ezra Pound in The Cantosthey distilled the personal into a poetic texture that claimed universal human significance. Maybe poetry is something that's "good enough" to make getting out of bed seem worthwhile.

    Compilation[ edit ] The Confucian school eventually came to consider the verses of the "Airs of the States" to have been collected in the course of activities of officers dispatched by the Zhou Dynasty court, whose duties included the field collection of the songs local to the territorial states of Zhou. This time lag has something to do with the nature of poetry. These questions echo throughout the poems, which resist easy answers. Just as the actor is the person who delivers a play to you, the actor in Stevens' modern poetry is some sort of engine that's driving the entire poem. What usually happens after is I shut up shop for a year or so, and have to put up with a bit of a dead stretch. Poems confront craving, control, the constant battle of alcoholism and sobriety, and the questioning of the self and its instincts within the context of this never-ending fight.

Poets like W. So, this was a brilliant start, you could call it a springboard, for me to be introduced to so many different styles and usage of language that we call poetry.

For the modernists, it was essential to move away from the merely personal towards an intellectual statement that poetry could make about the world. Stevens steps in here and says that poetry hasn't always had to do this.

Almost all of the "Airs", however, consist of three stanzas, with four-line stanzas being most common. It is a poetry of daunting knowledge.
