Is poetry old-fashioned?

Would you enjoy a book of poetry now? Or is it irrelevant in the twenty-first century.

i think poetry is not old fashioned at all... it is art and art can never be old.. i think poetry sends a message to people but in its deepest forms. i don't know but it's not really old. when you hear poetry read by a person who is very poetic the way they read is very artistic and they also understands the meaning of it. for me, i would still enjoy reading a book of poetry now because it has a deep meaning and it enjoys me trying to understand those stuff. it's really nice to actually understand it. i don't think it is errelevant in the twenty-first century because in poetry you can also see history there and history is a very important part os the future. and we can also learn new things and old lessons fron poetry.

Good for you. I find most poetry old-fashioned. I love simple poems.

I like to read poetry, infact I wish I could publish a book of my poems. It is not old fashioned at all. I guess it depends on what kind of poetry you write to how many people would be interested. But for me, I like it.

I would love a book of poetry, I think it has as much validity now as ever. Many rap tracks and songs show us the power of well written words to have an impact - and they are forms of poetry set to music.
