Poesia: tutte le opere poetiche

La produzione letteraria ha conosciuto la forma poetica fin dalla più remota antichità. Il testo classico dell’Iliade e dell’Odissea, la più celebre di tutte le opere poetiche dell’antichità’, fu opera di un poeta identificato nel nome di Omero.

Nel caso di questi capolavori, la stessa musicalità del testo permetteva di memorizzarne più facilmente lunghi brani: basterà pensare, a questo proposito, fino al XX secolo, la capacità da parte di contadini toscani a recitare lunghi brani della Divina commedia.
Pur essendo alcuni di questi contadini vittime di analfabetismo, l’intima musicalità dell’opera dantesca permetteva di recepire, memorizzare e poi recitare ad altri testi di cui poteva a volte sfuggire il significato teologico o morale, ma non l’intima bellezza.

Nel ventesimo secolo, la poesia si e’ liberata dai vincoli della metrica, e ha conosciuto fra gli italiani alcuni premi nobel per la letteratura: basterà citare Giosue’ Carducci, autore di alcune tra le più belle poesie del nostro ottocento, per poi passare a Eugenio Montale, la cui opera principale, Ossi di Seppia, fu stampata in poche copie per gli amici di Montale dall’editore piemontese Gobetti nel 1925.
