Poetry notoriously treats the big three, birth, love and death. Poetry also gives voice to a gamut of emotions and voices, which do not embody the cliche expectations of melodrama or syrupy effusiveness which many expect from poetry. Poetry and poetic prose provide a creative form fit to express the thoughts and passions of protest or lamentation, as well as exhortations of love or hate--read Wuthering Heights lately?
