Concrete Poetry

April 21st, 2014 · Comments Off

Concrete poetry is written so that the words not only conjure up a mental picture or an emotional response, but the words themselves form a picture on the page. A simple example is this “Apple Poem” by Sharon Creech, which can found in her book Love That Dog.

The Apple - Sharon Creech SC Rigg

Love that Dog tells the story of a boy who is experiencing poetry for the first time in his English class. The entire book is written in free verse style poetry, and mentions several well-known poems, such as “Tyger, Tyger, Burning Bright,” by William Blake, and Robert Frost’s “The Pasture.” The author has also written a sequel, Hate That Cat. (Fear not, cat-lovers, no cats are harmed in the course of the book.)
