“As poetry blossoms the social instincts, movements manifest the humane will”

Just as a poem blossoms the instincts of society, social movements manifest the humane will. Slogans also bloom. Poetry will contain many more slogans to bloom.

These lines blend poetry and social movements through their dialectic relationship to human will and the collective consciousness. Slogans represent the heart and soul of movements. Just as a wave front for tides of different frequency, a slogan manifests as the structure of feeling of a social movement. Poetry is also nothing but a structure of primordial feelings. When society is not congenial to movements to take shape, it may absorb itself in the direct words and subdued forms of poetry. We can find a great call for humanizing literature and making our social movements true manifestations of social will.
