Although some may disagree when asked whether or not a poem has the same affect and as other forms of literature when telling a love story, I would agree. For instance, Street Love, by Walter Dean Myers, is a wonderfully written book of poetry that tells a tale of a young woman, by the name of Junice, who is rescued from a life leading to crime and later, prison, when she falls in love with Damien (a young man from a much better part of town). As one reads through the book they are taken on a journey, through Junice’s eyes and mind. You get to experience her life of hardship and sadness, which ultimately makes one feel a deeper connection with Junice and what she is put through. Even before one reads this book they cannot understand what it truly means to break away from hardship and into love without reading and comprehending the passion and love in each and every line of this poetry.

The concept of the artists’ imagination as a separate entity, able to transcend the physical is a rather Romantic one. However Harwood does not limit the idea to only artists or poets in particular; she extends the creative drive to mean individual, spiritual passion.
