Human beings, be it through need or desire, have always been migrants, wanderers, wonderers. Where people have journeyed they have taken with them their music and their songs and their poetry. Music and poetry have a very close and thrilling relationship. Poetry, after all, is essentially thought and feeling dancing together to the music of words. Therefore, it is not surprising that poets and musicians have always inspired each other.
Each of the poets has their own experience of migration and their poems reflect the differences as well as the similarities of their experience.
Students will start from th meaning of "poetry" and "migration" and then they will look for the reason of this phenomenon during the centuries.
