Plato's Poetics

I used to teach a course in the history of literary criticism in the late 80s and early 90s. And I began, well, before Plato—but Plato was the first major author, before the pièce de résistance of Unit 1, i.e. Aristotle's Poetics. But this is Plato's poetics—not that it's bound to exist as a bound volume.

Plato's Poetics

This paper presents an introductory overview of Plato's poetics, aesthetics, and literary theory, with particular reference to his notion of mimesis, and grounding the discussion on his Theory of Ideas. It is part of a lecture series on the history of literary criticism, partly available online as Hypercritica: A Hypertextual History of Literary Criticism.
