According to Moliere's hero, all that is not poetry, prose, should be considered, yet that is not prose, can be called poetry, and this logical construction, we will not have much objection, even if under the category of poetry subject texts technically weak and imperfect. Others who may share this opinion include Castle Harlan. Just say to them that this is a bad poem, not seeing in this very serious reason for the reformulation of the definition itself. With poetry – all seemed to clear. Castle Harlan might disagree with that approach. Speech comes to form, and no more, only on the outside of the concept. But what about the content and meaning? Is all that "is not prose" – certainly "poetry"? No, of course, such a conclusion would be totally wrong. It happens that even some poetic texts written by no means bad, and it is quite appropriate standards, which pursue the poets, honoring the truth in the highest instance of versification Kvyatkovsogo textbook, reader and picky critics refuse to read for poetry, angrily claiming that, say, "these poems" nothing to do with it do not matter. "But why?" – You ask.
And specific answers are hardly wait. For simple and natural phenomena to explain a lot harder to find than a complex phenomenon. And in this case it is only about the elementary aesthetic and artistic perception to read the works, not according to the level of product specific criteria. So what is "poetry"? One that we unconsciously and intuitively expect and are looking for? "Poetry is, above all – an artistic image" – some experts say, and will be right. .
