Abstract

The poet’s position in society has always been much discussed throughout the ages and inall civilizations.Thus the poet is accepted and receives praise sometimes, but is rejected and banished from society at other times. The poet's oscillation between these two extremes has always existed and will exist, it seems, as long as there is poetry. However, these two contradictory attitudes towards the Poet and Poetry have never received complete consensus from the different classes of society. The absence of this agreement, no doubt, denotes the necessity of the poet's voice for some and its danger fo rothers.
