Ainda a poesia - Slam Poetry
Published13 Feb 2013
A discussão sobre a morte da poesia instalou-se em Inglaterra tendo como pano de fundo a slam poetry.
"Poetry’s enduring role, I believe, is to capture moments and emotions with a rare and beautiful brevity. “A Want” by Joshua Idehen was the most powerful dissection of the roots of the UK riots that I have read. Warsan Shire’s “Teaching My Mother How To Give Birth” is as sublimely composed a collection of poems as I have seen. Each of these poets and dozens more I have not named here, are just as accomplished on the page as they are on the stage. This divide between poets who perform their work and those who do not is, I believe a false one. Whether written or spoken, poetry is either well-crafted or it is not."
