World Cup fever has struck even the literary world.

Interesting Literature shared five classic poems about soccer (or football, depending on where you live).

The post explains that writing and football — both versions of the sport — do in fact go together.

Author Albert Camus was a soccer goalie, and the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens were named after Edgar Allen Poe’s famous poem.

And plus, poet Robert Frost once said, “Poetry is play. I’d even rather have you think of it as a sport. For instance, like football.”
