"The initial models for free verse poems were psalms and the Song of Solomon in the King James Version of the Bible" (Hamilton 239).
Wow! I feel like everything I have learned thus far in college comes from the bible. I took the 2 and a half hour course Bible as Literature and lets just say I have never new that so many concepts and words came from the Bible. Coming into this year I did not know what to expect but I never learned about the Bible so closely growing up as I do now. Then again this is a Catholic school. I guess I should have expected it.
