Poetics

Poetics is the theory of literary forms and literary discourse. The term "poetics" comes from the Greek ποιητικός poietikos "pertaining to poetry," "creative, productive," from ποιητός poietos "made," verbal adjective of ποιεῖν poiein "to make."Scholar T. V. F. Brogan identifies three major movements in Western poetics over the past 3,000 years, beginning with the formalist, objectivist Aristotelian tradition. During the Romantic era, poetics tended toward expressionism and emphasized the perceiving subject; the 20th century witnessed a return to the Aristotelian paradigm, followed by trends toward metacriticality, or the establishment of a theory of poetics. Eastern poetics developed with reference to the lyric, as opposed to the mimetic. Poetics is distinguished from hermeneutics by its focus not on the meaning of a text, but rather its understanding of how a text's different elements come together and produce certain effects on the reader. Most literary criticism combines hermeneutics in a single analysis.
