This is actually a pretty detailed question for this short space.Aristotle was an ancient Greek philosopher and scientist. The Poetics is Aristotle's attempt to explain the basic problems of art. He both defines art and offers criteria for determining the quality of a given artwork. The Poetics stands in opposition to the theory of art propounded by Aristotle's teacher, Plato.
