 Ab-e Hayat: Shaping the Canon of Urdu Poetry, by Muhammad Husain Azad; translated by Frances W. Pritchett, in association with Shamsur Rahman Faruqi
The Urdu poets, considering it an easy task and deciding to make their poetry widely popular, adopted the themes of beauty and love, and so on, and there is no doubt that what they did, they did very well.
No Urdu prose composition can be found before A.H. 1145 [1732-33], although as for poetry, if we sift through oral tales and accounts in books, the conclusion emerges that when Braj Bhasha, with its wide courtesy, gave a place to Arabic and Persian guest-words, in people's temperaments this natural growth [of poetry] too sprang up.
At the beginning of [my account of] Urdu poetry, it is worth mentioning that in Sanskrit one word has quite a number of meanings.

 Loss Review 1
And it is here where another history crosses the history of the battle between print and digital text; that other history is the battle within poetry itself between innovative poetries and what by default are here referred to as non-innovative poetries (47).
Digital poetry, of course, is not the first instance of a poetry which engages its medium.
Then there is the battle between narrative hypertext and poetic hypertext, followed by the opposition of poetry which conforms to the narrative paradigm versus poetry which opens up a new one.

 The Flowering of Japanese Literature
The writers of early Japanese history are not concerned with verification in the same way the modern historians are; they are, rather, concerned with setting out the special character of Japanese culture in the Yamato and Nara periods.
In the Manyoshu poetry and all its derivatives, the whole world can be writ small in a single, inconsequential event, such as the falling of a leaf of the blossoming of a cherry tree.
This interpretation, however, is very narrow—the Manyoshu poetry and its derivatives betray the entire range of human experience and emotion.The style is simple and direct, evoking meaning not from florid language or elaborate metaphors, but from the object or event being described.

 Norse-Icelandic Skaldic poetry of the Scandinavian middle ages: an electronic edition
Aside from its centrality and longevity in Scandinavia, skaldic poetry is of potential interest to scholars from many disciplines: medieval literature, orality-literacy studies, linguistics, poetics, myth studies, history, and the history of religions, to name only a few.
In origin, skaldic poetry seems to have been an elite oral court poetry, practised at the courts of regional kings and earls in ninth-century Norway.
Skaldic poetry had a 500-year history and survived a major religious and cultural change.

 Romantic Canons: A Bibliography
Curran explains the veritable "explosion" of publications of original poetry during the Romantic era as inspired by a new knowledge of poetic history and a desire "[t]o be 'among the English Poets'" (221): "For the first time there was an actual history not of literature per se, but of poetry in English.
In this chapter, I argue that distinctive differences between miscellaneous collections of poetry and anthologies, published in their modern form for the first time during the early 19th century, reveal that canonizing began during the romantic era, and that it is an activity structurally dependent upon the exclusion of women poets.
The generation [of poets] beginning in the 1780s and truly emerging into artistic leadership in the 1790s was the first ever to know that history.

Limericks are short and no great talent is necessary to compose one - Limericks are a form of poetry that everyone feels happy to try (especially when inebriated!).
And finally the somewhat dubious history of limericks have contributed to the critics attitudes.
The form of poetry referred to as Limerick poems have received incredibly bad press and dismissed as not having a rightful place amongst what is seen as 'cultivated poetry'.

 Islamic History in Arabia and Middle East
Just as the writing of history began from practical rather than literary motives, so the collection and preservation of Arabic poetry was undertaken by scholars with, at first, little interest in its artistic merit.
The history of modern Arabic poetry, with its many schools and contending styles, is almost impossible to summarize.
By the ninth century, the method of compiling history from hadith and carefully citing the authorities for each tradition - a process which had resulted in books of unwieldy length - was abandoned by some authors, like al-Dinawari and al-Ya'qubi, who omitted the chains of transmitters and combined hadith to produce a narrative.

 An introduction to Chinese literature
The spread of Buddhism from India, the invention of printing, and the flowering of poetry and prose illuminated the entire period and made it one of the most brilliant in Chinese literary history.
Chinese literature may be divided into three major historical periods that roughly correspond to those of Western literary history: the classical period, from the 6th century BC through the 2nd century AD; the medieval period, from the 3rd century to the late 12th century; and the modern period, from the 13th century to the present.
Wang Wei, a meditative philosopher and painter with Buddhist inclinations, depicted the serenity of nature's beauty; it has been said that poetry is in his pictures and pictures are in his poems.

 Teacher Lesson Plan - Enhancing a Poetry Unit with American Memory
To appreciate and recognize the elements of poetry and then to create "found poetry" from the stories and language recorded in American Life Histories, 1936-1940 from diverse geographic regions.
"Found Poetry" can serve as an antidote to an experienced poet's block, but it can also get a new poet rolling with the use of someone else's language, images, cadences, and, of course, observations about life.
Because the Life Histories are in the most basic sense the personal property of the people chronicled in them, poets and teachers of student poets would be well advised to approach them with the respect due any human being, and to use them for the good purposes of understanding history and creating art.
