There is a specific terminology in poetry (or art in general) that I absolutely cannot remember.
I can't remember who coined the phrase or else I might have been able to search for it.
Essentially, it is a phrase that entails the necessity of the artist being enveloped in the lifestyles/culture of the times, the necessity of being a part of current events as opposed to isolation. It is a phrase that means: inhabiting the significance of the world around you for artistic betterment.
I wish I could remember who coined the phrase or the terminology itself.
Can anyone please help me? I'm dying to chase this down.
