Neoclassical poetry (Enlightenment)
= didactic (teaches people)
Essay on man - Alexander Pope
Know then thyself, presume not God to scan;
The proper study of Mankind is Man.
Plac'd on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise, and rudely great:
= personal feeling (art for the sake of art, expression of emotions)
I wandered lonely as a cloud - William Wordsworth
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
