Emblematic Poetry Description: An Emblematic Poem is one
that is in the shape of the
subject of the poem. It is also
called shaped poetry, figured
poetry, pattern poetry, and

It differs from concrete poetry
in that the poem should
be a readable text which is
not always true of concrete
poetry. (Although a concrete
poem may have a poetic text;
it is not required.) Early
examples of pattern poetry
include "Easter Wings" by
George Herbert (1593-1633)
and the typographic shape of
a mouse's tale in Lewis
Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.
