    As the contemporary poet Meena Alexander said, "Poetry takes as its purview what is deeply felt and is essentially unsayable; that is the paradox on which the poem necessarily turns. A poet uses language as a painter uses color, a primary material out of which to make art. But language that is used all the time and all around us—in sound bites, advertisements, political rhetoric, newsprint—needs to be rinsed free so that it can be used as the stuff of art."  From Homer's epic, The Odyssey, to the English Renaissance's John Milton, the Romantic period's Goethe and John Keats, to 20th century poetry by Guillaume Apollinaire or E. E. Cummings, there is no end to what poetry can be.
