"For whatever reason, people, including very well-educated people or people otherwise interested in reading, do not read poetry"

- Paul Muldoon

About this Quote

This quote by Paul Muldoon speaks with the reality that, regardless of the fact that poetry is a kind of literature that has been around for centuries, it is not as extensively checked out as other types of literature. This might be due to the fact that poetry is typically seen as hard to understand or interpret, or that it is not viewed as appropriate to contemporary life. It could likewise be due to the truth that poetry is often seen as too abstract or too psychological for some readers. Whatever the factor, it is clear that poetry is not as extensively read as other kinds of literature, even among those who are well-read or otherwise thinking about reading. This is a pity, as poetry can be a powerful and meaningful type of expression that can offer insight into the human experience.
