Default Please help me solve precis 1971

Dear all on the forum,
Below is a passage from 1971 precis paper. please help me solve it as it appears quiet difficult to me.
I shall be grateful.


"The essence of poetry is that it deals with events which concern a large number of people and can be grasped not as immediate personal experience but as matter known largely from heresy and presented in simplified and often abstract forms. it is thus the antithesis of all poetry which deals with the special, individual activity of the self and tries to present this as specially and as individually as it can. The poet who deals with public themes may himself be affected, even deeply, by contemporary events at some point in his own being, but to see them in their breadth and depth he must rely largely on what he hears from other men and from mass instruments of communication. From the start his impulse to write about them is different from any impulse to write about his own affairs. It may be just as strong and just as compelling, but it is not of the same kind. He has to give his own version of something which millions of others may share with him, and however individual he may wish to be, he cannot avoid relying to a large extent on much that he knows only from second hand.
Fundamentally this may not matter, for after all what else did Shakespeare do: but the political poet does not construct an imaginary past, he attempts to grasp and interpret a vast present. Between him and his subject there is a gap which he can never completely cross, and all his attempts to make events part of himself must be to some extent hampered by recalcitrant elements in them, which he does not understand or cannot assimilate or find irrelevant to his creative task. in such poetry selection which is indispensable to all art, has to be made from an unusually large field of possibilities and guided by an exacting sense of what really matters and what does not. On one side he may try to include too much and lose himself in issues where be is not imaginatively at home, on the other side he may see some huge event merely from a private angle which teed not mean much to others. Political poetry oscillates between these extremes, and its history in our time has been largely attempts to make the best of one or the other of them or to see what compromises can be made between them."

In poetry it is difficult to keep balance between poet’s impulse and the apparent event he writes about


Poetry is simple gallery of imaginations which depicts human experience in a broader perspective. It does not follow a pattern of thought and affairs which are individualized only.
A poet has impartial eyes to view the circumstances. His hands write what the phenomena communicate to him. He lets nothing different to temper with the first hand knowledge of objects.
Though the practical poets like Shakespeare try to create a harmonized version that includes their insight too yet the differences are hard to be bridged. Political poetry is therefore well expressed in public opinions at one instance and in poet’s viewpoint at the other but never in the mixture of both.

[B]Poetry -an impersonal and personal experince.
Poetry deals with day to day routined life experince of different people.A poet starts a theme with a personal experience , but soon he has to become impersonal to get the real harmony.
All practical poets like Shakespeare had used the same skill.He started his poetry not just relying on the past knowledge but he has also expressed the outlook of people around him in all his poetry.Practical poetry intermingle individual experience with others outlook in the same way.
