The aim of this essay is to show the way which poetic language provides the reader with factual information about the events which happen in the world. At the beginning, the poetic language will be explained and discussed. Then, a brief introduction will be given about the Iraqi war in 2003. For discussions and to support the arguments in the essay, three poems are chosen. They will be analysed and it will be shown the way that poetic language presents the factuality.
