In the paradoxical language, Cleanth Brooks takes the language of poetry, saying that the most important poetry is the paradoxical language. Brooks relies on the contradictions inherent in poetry and his feelings that if these contradictions do not exist, then it would not be our best poetry today

From Wordsworth to Shakespeare Brooks it turns out that the only way to express some ideas paradox. The most favorable example of this idea is the description of Coleridge's imagination,

… revealing itself in the equilibrium or reconciliation of the opposite contradictory properties: the identity with the difference; the general, the concrete; the idea of ​​imagination; the individual, the representative; the feeling of novelty and freshness with old and familiar objects, more than usual in an emotional state … (Brooks 40)

Brooks points out that while this is an eloquent statement, a series of paradoxes. He argues that since poetry is spending his time trying to explain ideas and feelings as the idea of ​​immaterial rather than imagination, it must be used as a paradox to best convey these ideas.

Brooks reaffirms his arguments in using the paradox of poetry, reading John Donne's "canonization" from close up. He says that if not the paradox, Donne's verse will not be faced if he does not take love seriously or seriously does not take religion.

Both of the poems, Brooks, conclude that Donne is able to make two lovers create the physical world of their love and sacrifice solemnly with the paradox that their love and religion will be created.

Brooks To one point I agree, poetry is paradoxically full of emotions and emotions that can not be expressed simply through a single amount of thought, but must include a number of controversial ideas to begin to describe the feeling or feeling.

An example of Coleridge's response to the hypothesis of imagination, its excellent example. However, Coleridge's example undermines the assumption that in this paradox is not only the language of poetry or literature, but the language of life. In everyday life, we strive to explain something, ideas, events, emotions that can be explained simply by straightforward, forward-looking expressions, but require a series of contradictions or paradoxes if we understand that we properly mediate their meaning. There is no reason why poetry should be different and I think that the radical tone of the chapter, the idea of ​​seeking new and previously misguided paths for poetry, is unfounded and barely revolutionary.
