Wow. Interesting. Different Republican leaders on immigration. Also, Trump travels back in time, of course.

Is the human brain hardwired to appreciate poetry?

In 1932 T.S. Eliot famously argued, "Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood." In a recent article published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, Professor Guillaume Thierry and colleagues at Bangor University have demonstrated that we do indeed appear to have an unconscious appreciation of poetic construction. "Poetry", explains Professor Thierry "is a particular type of literary expression that conveys feelings, thoughts and ideas by accentuating metric constraints, rhyme and alliteration." However, can we appreciate the musical sound of poetry independent of its literary meaning?
