Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

We live in a prosaic age. Most of what we read in books, on the web, in emails, in text messages, on social media, and in the mass media is written in prose. The novel remains the most popular and salable literary form, and popular and genre prose fiction is published and sold in vast numbers across the world. And yet, readers continue to engage with poetry, especially when they want to express deep feelings or emotions connected to what they consider sacred.
