Question description

The oldest-known poem is called “The Epic of Gilgamesh” and was preserved on clay tablets from Ancient Mesopotamia. This poem tells the story of Gilgamesh who may have ruled about 2700 BC in Sumeria. Not only is this the oldest poem but it is the oldest piece of literature presently known.

Although more people read novels, newspapers, and other forms of writing, before modern times, poetry was by far the most popular form of creative writing. Why do you think poetry used to be so popular and now it is less so? Decide on an opinion on why poetry is less popular now and write about it. Be sure to explain your opinion with evidence.
