In Shelley's famous A€Defense of Poetry, €he lays out the role of the poet in the creation of poetry. To Shelley, €a poet is more than simply an artist; he is a visionary who has the ability to reveal the world's hidden truths, which most people do not see. Good poetry, then, is a mix of imagination and reason. All poems are crafted with some degree of reasoning from the poet, but it is the poet's imagination that truly gives the poem its power. As Shelley notes in the essay: "A poem is the very image of life exposed in its eternal truth." The imagination enables the poet to shape the world in a new and interesting way. Like Plato, Aristotle, Sir Philip Sidney and Ben Jonson before him, €Percy€Shelley€contributed a new understanding of the role of a poet and poetry in literature in his€A Defense of Poetry, €while at the same time outlining the facets of Romanticism
