Kurdish poetry now in cheap market, says poet08/09/2012 16:43
ERBIL, September 8 (AKnews) – Kurdish poet Marf Omer Gul believes that a new market of cheap and low quality poems exists in the Kurdistan Region.
Gul, who is the dean of law and political science in Suli University, said: "Kurdish poetry is in a very poor condition and if the poems were originally like that I could write tens of poems every day."
Gul criticized today's poetry and said: "The poem's language is very poor and written in very low quality.
"Some newspapers and magazines do not deserve to publish some work. They release poor quality work. This crossed into literature as well. The things that are called poetry and literature today have low quality.
"Writing is only for friendship groups these days. They describe low quality writing as good and release it in their newspapers. This confused me and people with similar voices."
