Two examples of this are Terrence Hayes and Harryette Mullen, who are both remarkable at their occupation as poets as well as producing a ton of great and award-winning poetry collections, which depicted bibliophiles into reading and exasperating to interpret their poems. Terrence Hayes drew his inspiration for his poetry round the genre of Hip Hop.

Poetry can be divided into two groups; written poetry and spoken word poetry. Written poetry, also known as page poetry, is written and is analysed by the reader.
My Captain!” clearly displays how much emotion he as along with the strategies he uses to create the poem and shows what he is trying to portray.
