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'.

- Proverb
