Who determines a poet?
Is being a poet determined by the poet himself or by his readers?
I believe I was a poet long before anyone ever read my work. It's the creativity in you and the ability to express yourself a certain way which determines whether or not you are a poet.
I feel the same way too. But I've heard of some literary writers (or painters) who were not not recognized as such during their time, but after the passing of times, became so great and were set as the standards in their chosen endeavor.
I know, but I believe times have changed as we have evolved into appreciating an artist when we see one. Maya Angelo is recognized in her time and so is Barry Watson, one of Jamaica's most famous painters. I think a poet is a poet.
A poet is a poet in their own right. While notoriety may follow, only the poet's writing poetry makes them a poet.
You don't have to be famous to be a poet.
If only poets with accolades were considered poets, or if a poem had to read and appreciated before it could be considered a poem, and the writer a poet, then few would be able to aspire to the title of poet.
You write for yourself. If someone else likes it too then that is wonderful--but in no way necessary.
