Name:Professor:Class:Date:Fiction, Poetry, DramaIntroductionAccording to the futurists, the current age which is taken to be the age of big industry, sophisticated life and large proletarian cities, is highly in need of new art, language, behaviour and philosophy. The futurists are therefore said to be revolutionalists since they developed this idea at a time when the socialists, politicians and economists never had such an idea in their minds. Since the futurists have focussed on art as an important element in reshaping the current ways of life, it can be said to have great relevance to humanity. The modern world is characterized by civilization in most aspects of life through globalization. Art has a great role to play in enhancing civilization in different generations of mankind. The essay focuses on the relevance of art to humanity through its contribution to civilization and its value in history. In addition, the essay will focus on poetry as an instrument of change. DiscussionRelevance of Art to HumanityContribution of Art to CivilizationArt has a lot of significance to humanity especially by its contribution to civilization.

The aspect of making the art public is important since it has been argued that unless people are aware of existence of the work of art, they cannot develop the interest of changing their ways of life. An example of Art presented to the public is the work by Rothenberg and Joris in the book the “Poems for the Millennium: The University of California Book of Modern and Postmodern Poetry”. This is a collection of poems from different artists. These artists had their own thoughts and experiences which they put in writing but it was not possible to convey these messages to the people. As such, the art work could not have impacted significantly in the modern society. The compilation of these poems in a book by Rothenberg and Joris have made it possible to make the art work public since the book is accessible to ma...
