Great Poetry Reading Day is observed on April 28, 2024. It celebrates great poetry and the great poets who write them. You can take part by reading poetry, listening to poetry or writing your own poetry. Poetry is a form of literary art which uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language - such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre - to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning. There are many different genres of poetry, e.g. dramatic, lyric or prose poetry. In addition there are different forms, such as Sonnet, Villanelle or Haik.
