Scope note
Literary works of 20th-century poetry, particularly of the concrete poetry movement of the 1950s and 1960s in which language elements are arranged freely, not necessarily in linear syntax, and meaning is derived from spatial, pictorial, and typographic characteristics of the work, as well as from the sense of the words. For pre-20th-century works of poetry in which letters, words, or lines are arranged to form a shape or image, usually related to the meaning of the words, use "pattern poems."
