A calligram is a form of poetry created to be viewed and admired, as well as being read, and stands out given its peculiar typographic layout, as the words are placed to create a picture or other strange designs. In such calligrams, in general terms, the poet makes a picture related to the poems main theme with the words. For example, if the poem is about a flower, the words in the text are written out and placed on the flower’s petal, for example, to simulate the shape of a flower. On the other hand, the text’s drawing holds no direct relation but is a simple evocative or semantic relationship.
