What is Poetry? 2

Now, the quotations about poetry:

Poets are masters of us ordinary men, in knowledge of the mind, because they drink at streams which we have not yet made accessible to science. (Sigmund Freud)

Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself, but with its subject. (John Keats)

Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world,  and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar. (Percy Bysshe Sheley)

Poetry is more philosophical and of higher value than history; for poetry tends to express the universal, history the particular. (Aristotle)

And that's all, folks!
by Bárbara Prado.
