A poem is that species of composition, which is opposed to works of science, by proposing for its immediate object pleasure; not truth; and from all other species (having this object in common with it) it is discriminated by proposing to itself such delight from the whole. From each component part it is compatible with a ratification that is distinct.

A poem is different from scientific works because its main aim is to evoke pleasure rather than convey truth. It stands out from other types of writing by focusing on delighting its audience, making it unique in its purpose and effect.
