*Jorge Luis Borges: “Poetry is something that cannot be defined without oversimplifying it. It would be like defining love, the color yellow, the fall of leaves in autumn.”

*Wallace Stevens: poetry is revelations of words by means of words

*Ben Jonson: poetry is the craft of making.

*William Carlos Williams: a small or large machine made of words

*W.H. Auden: poem is a verbal artifact which must be as skillfully and solidly constructed as a table or motorcycle

*Philip Sydney: poetry is counterfeiting, a figuring forth, to speak metaphorically, the end of which is to teach and delight

*Coleridge: synthetic and magical power to which we have exclusively appropriated the name of imagination

*Shelley: the record of the best and happiest moments of the happiest and best minds Marianne Moore: imaginary gardens with real toads in them

*Edgar Allan Poe: the rhythmical creation of beauty

Langston Hughes: "Poetry is the human soul entire, squeezed like a lemon or a lime, drop by drop, into atomic words."
