I enjoy poems but will not individually/actively analyze deeply unless I can share with someone, i.e. you / others here
I generally like them as I think there is something special about subjectivity, emotional depth, and creative expression where you can communicate things that politics and such cannot. I don't know too many off the top of my head, but one that comes to mind is The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. (By the way I intended to respond to this long ago but got busy)Do you like the poem, or poetry in general? Which other ones do you like? The first poem I felt strongly about was Du må ikke sove (You mustn't sleep) by Norwegian poet Arnulf Øverland.
I enjoyed these as well. (I'll revisit these later on to process - I usually read through things several times before being able to analyze) For me, the art and poetry can come out in times when my thoughts reach a standstill of cognitive overload. Then I find out things about myself I didn't know that other people or external input of information could never create. Though technically art and poetry can have as much or as little systematic, logical, rational, intellectual, or complex thought integrated within it, so I can see INTPs utilizing it. It isn't that far off from doing something like writing and analyzing as it involves translation of abstract complexity. For me, sort of "letting go" of judgment allows me to connect with parts of myself I had been conditioned to lose from the transition from child to adult. That is where creativity can get re-ignited if lost in the shuffle of loads of information and help INTPs resume their day or night recalibrated. It can be therapeutic regardless of MBTI, but is of course not something everyone enjoys or finds comes naturally.hmm.. I have never in my life felt any need for self expression through art or poetry.
e_e isn't that a Fi thing IxFPs constantly do?
I came close to self expression through photography, but it was mostly just my interest in photography gear... it could have been any other machine I just wanted to understand.
In terms of English literature however, I do really enjoy Kipling:
Its one of my most favorite poems
