Do you like poetry better or literature?
Short, meaningful poetry or beautiful long literature? What do you think?
Beautiful long literature, I'm just not the kind who fully appreciates Poetry. I've tried to get into it, tried to write it, but its just not me.
I like both. I guess it depends on the mood, the content, the thoughts I'm having at the moment. It goes both ways, whether I'm reading it or writing it.
So much depends not only on a red wheelbarrow and white chickens but the reader's frame of mind. I live in New Hampshire where the winters are long and cold. Some nights I love curling up with a big book for hours of pleasure. At other times, I need a quick peek at something that still takes away my breath, be it a piece by Frost or something more complicated by Eliot. Making a definitive choice between two flawless gems is therefore impossible.
I prefer writing poetry to reading it, but literature has won me over. So I'd say beautiful long literature.
Literature. I love descriptions, the more detail the better. Poetry is too short and not blunt enough from my perspective.
Thanks for all the response! Personally, I love literature cause it's so interesting but I love poetry also because it has rhythm and I love rhythm.

Okay, when I get on my kicks I write anywhere from 4 to 10 poems a day, maybe more. This doesn't mean that all of them make the cut, or don't go through some heavy revisions. I'm just interested in other...
