William Ernest Henley (23 August 1849 - 11 July 1903) is poet, publisher and critic. A vivid example of how one work can change the thoughts and feelings of millions of people. Poem "Invictus" , which William Ernest Henley wrote at the age of 16, after amputation of leg due to severe illness, became an anthem of fortitude and the ability to overcome obstacles. Other works of the author are no less valuable from a literary point of view.
We a group of like-minded people who are passionate about poetry decided to create this collection of poems by eminent authors.
Among us are teachers, artists, programmers. We all love poems so much. We believe that poetry is painting in words.
The idea of creating this poetic library appeared at a time when we realized that to us, to our children and students there is a lack of a common source of information that would be always at hand and where, without effort, we could find the works of our favorite authors. We sincerely believe and hope that this initiative will find its like-minded people. Thanks for the feedback and rating. For us it is very important.
Why is it important to read poetry?
Poetry is the greatest art that gives a special meaning, rhythm to ordinary words.
Poetry is directly related to music.
If you think that there is no poetry around you, and it is left in the past you are very much mistaken.
Poetry nowadays exists more than ever. Count how many songs have you heard in the course of your life? All they were certainly with poems,
with rhythm and rhyme. We believe that it is necessary to read and write poetry.
This is a very exciting activity, it brings joy. Poetry can convey emotions,
thoughts, throw them out on the screen or paper. Write your poems, send them to us, and we will try our best to bring them to the reader.
Because it is about poetry that our job is dedicated!
