Published: 27 Aug 2014
Abstract: Being asked what poetry is we can turn to dictionaries where plenty of definitions are to be found. However in fact we take poetry as a way of putting words and emotions together. Just the same we do in the process of usual communication. So what’s the difference? It lies in the meaning transfer given by poetry as a communicative tool, a little bit more than ordinary verbal one.

The example we can find in lyrics by Sergey Yesenin, who created very “close” communicative style like we nowadays use in Facebook.
