Poetry expands cultural awareness and the introduction of new contexts expands one’s universal understanding. Poetry helps boost reading skills by recognizing the same sound in different words. It also can improve spelling. Poetry helps develop vocabulary as words not usually spoken become introduced. Poetry introduces literary concepts such as alliteration, metaphors, and similes. This improves language knowledge, a valuable attribute for interpreting dialogue.
