Symbolist poetry

Symbolism, as a type and movement in poetry, emphasized non-structured "internalized" poetry that, for lack of better words, describe thoughts and feelings in disconnected ways and places, logic, formal structure, and descriptive reality in the back seat. Their models were Charles Baudelaire and Walt Whitman; they in turn were models for 20th century "modernist" poets such as Ezra Pound, T S Eliot and the French Surrealists.
