Function of a Poet

Short Note about The Function of a Poet

Generally a poet is he who is able to use the best words in the best orders. Wordsworth emphasizes that self-gratification is not the aim of a poet. His fiction is not the aim of a poet. His purpose is to communicate to others about his own thoughts, feelings and his own pleasure. For this reason Wordsworth calls upon the poet to come down from the ivory tower (tower of knowledge) saying, “Poets do not write for poets alone but for men.”
