Political

The poetry of political figures and activists

Abraham Lincoln’s “My Childhood Home I See Again” star
The first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, demonstrated great rhetoric ability when he wrote the Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation. He maintained a strong interest in poetry and tried to write it, although he lacked confidence in his poetic ability.

Poetry and Politics star
The political poets Carolyn Forché and Adrienne Rich best exemplify the view that “the personal is political”; another view is that poetry is never a fit vehicle for politics.
