What is free verse poetry? In simple terms, it is poetry that does not rhyme with fixed forms. It is free from any limitations while still providing artistic expression. This unique form of poetry has been around for hundreds of years, being used by such masters as William Shakespeare, Arthur Rimbaud, Friedrich Hölderlin, and Walt Whitman, along with many famous Russian poets of the Silver Age. Today, free verse poetry is also one of the most popular poetic styles, especially among the younger generation of contemporary poets, such as Rupi Kaur who has already conquered the Western world with her collection of free verse poems. The Russian poet Eva Mayer is another bright representative of contemporary free verse poetry. She is only at the beginning of her artistic career, but this bold and ambitious woman has firmly captured the public’s attention to her work.
