Abstract

Poetics is an art work of Aristotle. In the existing chapters, it mainly discusses the creation of tragedies and epics. At the outset, he mentioned that "poetry is the art of imitating." In this article, it is considered that "imitation" is not only a means but also a purpose in poetry. This article starts from Aristotle's source of mimicking thought, the criticism of Plato and the understanding of poetry imitating, and discusses the imitation thought in "Poetics".
