About this Quote

This quote by Ismail Kadare talks to the power of language and its ability to shape a nation. A poet is the daddy of a country because they are the ones who develop the language that will be used to communicate and reveal ideas. The language of a nation is the mother of a nation due to the fact that it is the structure upon which the nation is built. Language is the tool that allows people to interact, express their ideas and sensations, and produce a shared understanding of the world. It is the language of a nation that binds its people together and gives them a sense of identity and belonging. Language is the foundation of a nation and the poet is the one who creates it. Without language, a country would not exist.
