Poetry is one art that can- in all age- be used to express the inner most thoughts of men but these thoughts we read everyday could just be a quick fix for fame and other things the zenith presents or just a fluke.
Many people ask if poetry is fiction since it is under the aegis of imagination and exaggeration. What do you think? Yes or No?
Yes. It could be fiction but I doubt the possibilities if we are to consider William Wordsworth’s definition of the term.
No. Because you see, poetry comes from what is felt. And what you feel, I think, is real. It is something that is so genuine; it cannot be adulterated except a poet wills it.
What do you think? Can poetry be fiction?
