'Poetry is form and permanent poetry is permanent form', says Paul Fussell. Form has ever been one of the problems poets encounter when deciding to building their poems. Views of traditional stanzaic forms reflect to some extent standpoint towards authority, hierarchy, and history. Some poets wrote most of their verse in the traditional stanza forms. Others favour more exotic forms. Others again, tried to abandon established forms and create new ones.
