Poetry, in many ways, defies definition. Any restrictions would disqualify some works that are, nevertheless, poetry. The only statement about poetry that we can make with absolute certainty is that good poetry uses what is known as 'compressed language.' That means that it says a lot but uses few words to do so.

Students who are accustomed to skimming over their lessons once and dashing off correct answers in record time will find that poetry asks much more of us than ... more
