Epic Poems: The Odyssey And The Iliad And Odyssey
Most poems try to produce an emotional result, tell a story, or to share a message. Poems also use psychology in many ways related to the writer and to the reader. The writer can enjoy writing poetry because they can use self-expression while writing and it often enables someone to express their feelings, thoughts, attitudes, and interests within their poems by using creative expression. Poets can often get inspiration or motivation from writing and often use that to inspire or motivate others by writing a poem for a friend when they are feeling down. Another psychological aspect of poetry is that it is usually a healthy form of emotional expression. Poems can be used to convey happiness or sadness about a person’s life or a situation, or also to write a love poem for someone. A reader or listener can also discern certain psychological aspects from a poem also. One of these is empathy, or the fact that people want to understand other feelings. People often read sad or happy poems when they are sad to try to lift their mood or darken it, depending on their state of mind. Another aspect is artistic appreciation and that is reading poetry solely for that specific writer.
