The Idea of Greatness in Poetry
By Gaiyaiobi Zaevan
“Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history because poetry expresses the universal and history is particular.
This quote was actually given to me by a young man in a recent conversation we had about greatness in rap music. I would like to insert this little tidbit about me and my recent sparing buddy on all things intellectual and philosophical. We enjoy goading each other to see if one or the other can prove their point. We have had many discussions that have proven to be interesting and exhausting a particular point of interest.
