Homework Help: To Writeacher

Posted by Naoto on Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 10:53pm.

"Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings; it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility: the emotion is contemplated till, by a species of re-action, the tranquility disappears, and an emotion, kindred to that which was before the subject of contemplation, is gradually produced, and does itself actually exist in the mind." -William Wordsworth So basically it is saying that poetry begins with the feelings one has when they are at peace, and then by analyzing the poem, the reader is able to feel what the poet was feeling when they wrote it? Is that correct?
