Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry

Poetic Schools or Movements That Have Influenced the Direction of Poetry Through History

The craft of writing poetry has taken various routes throughout history. All learning builds on knowledge that has gone before and the craft of writing is no different. How we write today has been built from how others wrote in the past. Throughout history poetic schools or movements have sprung up influenced by the conventions or philosophies of the times that surrounded them. The following are a few to take note of. I try to include a poem from one poet in each movement or era when I can find them already posted somewhere on the internet.
