Four Types of Poets
ਪਾਠ ਚੁਰਾਵੈ ਭਾਰਯਾ ਅਰਥ ਚੁਰਾਵੈ ਪੂਤ ।
That poet which copies verbatim from another poet is called a 'Woman Poet'; and one who copies the meanings of another is called a 'Son Poet'.
ਭਾਵ ਚੁਰਾਵੈ ਮੀਤ ਸੋ ਸੁਤੇ ਕਹੈ ਅਵਧੂਤ ।
One who copies the essence of another poet is called a 'Friend Poet'; and one who naturally, without thinking, originates his own poetry is called a 'Perfected Poet'.
