There was a poet who said this:
Poetry is the art of giving different names to the same thing.
They are copied all over the internet. But is this true? In the comments of that post @Randal'Thor and @JoshuaEngel say that this is a poor description of poetry. Why is that?
- Skeptics: Was there a person made the quote about poetry that Poincaré responded to?
- Mathematics: How correct is the quote that "mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things"?
