Pirzada: In the past, the various schools of thought usually discussed two aspects of poetry; the form of poetry and word-selection. They didn’t believe that good poetry should be contemporary in content. They believed that good poetry should be timeless. The other school of thought was of the opinion that if poetry does not reflect the era in which it is said, then what is its use. I personally believe that our issues and era should be reflected in the poetry.
