Pro

I have realised recently that many individuals debate the relevance of poetry and philosophy by the likes of Shakespear, Oscar Wilde and other famous historic writers in our school system.

I have many reasons why such literature is of significant relevance, furthermore I challenge someone with an opposing opinion to debate on the matter.

RULES OF THE DEBATE:

Pro is of the opinion that poetry is a relevant school topic.

Con is of the opinion that poetry is unnecessary in the school system.

Round 1:Initial statement/acceptance NO ARGUMENTS HERE
Round 2:First arguments
Round 3:Rebuttals
Round 4:Rebuttals
Round 5:Conclusion

Stay on topic and keep it clean, also try to keep it reasonably short.

Poetry is not essential because the same education can be received through the analysis of literature.
