  • Definition of Poetry from
    the art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts.

  • well the Psalms are poetry but your goig to have to go back to the original hebrew inorder to understand the poetic devices

    there are some good books by CH Spurgeon on this topic one is the Treasury of David which is a comentary on the Psalms and the other that may be of help (and is much shorter) is the Golden Alphabet

    i know Spurgeon is prodestant but he is a good Theologian

  • well this project is for school so i really don't care if he is orthodox or not as long as i write a lot.
    and thank u for the defintion. i will use it in my intro. :)
