MAJOR SCHOOLS OF POETRY




       METAPHYSICAL SCHOOL OF POETRY: The term “”Metaphysical “” was first used by Dryden and further extended by Dr. Johnson. It refers to a group of 17th century philosophical poets who employed far –fetched imagery, abstruse arguments, scholastic philosophical terms and subtle logic.

   GRAVEYARD SCHOOL OF POETRY: Grave yard school of poetry is a term applied to a group of poets of the 18th century who wrote poetry in the back ground of the grave. They wrote elegiac or meditative poems on the themes of death and morality of life.

PRE-RAPHAELITE SCHOOL OF POETS: A group of painter-poets led by D.G. Rossetti founded the Pre-Raphaelite school of poetry. Other poets of this school were Christina Rossetti, Swinburne, and William Morris. They wrote highly sensuous, pictorial and symbolical poems which could be painted with equal effect.

SATANIC SCHOOL OF POETS: This derogatory term was applied by Robert Southey t the younger romantic poets including Shelley, Byron, Moore and Leigh Hunt. He called them so because they revolted against the established moral and Christian values and beliefs both in their life and literature.

IMAGIST SCHOOL OF POETRY:  The Imagist school was a poetic movement that flourished in England and America between the years 1912 and 1917. The poets of this school were free to choose any subject and create its own rhythms and to pain an image that is hard, clear and concentrated.
