What is poetry?
The spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.
This is the famous definition of poetry given by Wordsworth. In the same book he calls his poetry ‘experimental’. According to him, it is the poet’s business to embody in their poetry the general passions of men. Poetry should be full of emotion and passion to convey through it the feelings of the poet themselves.
Hello there! An aspiring writer here... My motto is, like Ulysses, "to follow knowledge like a sinking star, Beyond the utmost bound of human thought."(Tennyson) I love #poetry, #literature and #books and all the people that love these three.
