Bentham takes poetry to be a persuasive art because ideas conveyed poetically are readily believed by virtue of the pleasure poems im-part
I have never really understood poetry until my modern literature class this semester. But, this claim cannot be truer. Maybe not all poetry has a persuasive nature, but for the most part, poets tend to make points by making cunning connections to moments to history or another works. Just to tie it in to modern times, N.W.A back in their day would use moments in their lives for their raps to persuade not only the audience, but everyone.
