ABSTRACT
A definition of poetry as fiction is presented. It describes poems as fiction if they are primarily about imagined characters, events, places, or orbjects, and that fictions are often inspired by personal experiences, historical or current events, philosophical conundrums, and other works of fiction. The demarcation between the fictional and the nonfictional of poems is noted. Also mentioned is the absence of consensus among theorists of fiction regarding answers to searching questions.
