First name / Friend, it is Poetry Day again! Here at Arwani Law Firm we enjoy conversations about new and exciting topics that are flowing in our lives and that would benefit you, the reader. As stated before, The Victorian poet Matthew Arnold once claimed that “The crown of literature is poetry”. Lately, we at the firm discussed the fact that poetry has slowly declined in impact as time has gone by. But to us, it still feels like poetry and the boundaries of creativity and expression that it shatters, are just as important today as they were throughout human history. Here are 3 of the most famous poems of all time: 
  • Oh Captain! My Captain!: This poem by Walt Whitman was a result of a his sadness of the Civil War. The poem is supposed to be in reference to then deceased president Abraham Lincoln. Whitman was the up and coming poet who was going to revolutionize the well-established poetic practices.
  • Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening: Robert Frost wrote this poem in 1922 and was published with his other famous long poem “New Hampshire”. As one of the most famous poets of all time, Frost was known for his ability to portrait the complex imagery in your mind. This poem really puts the reader in the poets mindset and his fascination with the woods.
  • For Whom the Bell Tolls/No Man is an Island: This poem by John Donne explores themes of life, death, and the human condition. He suggests that no man is an “island.” Donne addresses humanity, asking everyone to reconsider how they perceive themselves and their relationship to everyone else. 
We hope you get the chance to read this poems and spark that love for poetry that our society so desperately needs. As always, stay safe.
