Aristotle said 'Poet is that from who can give happiness, therapeutic effects to the reader.' He say to 'mimoumenon' it means a native Image restored. However, Kant said that Aesthetic is requested not only reappearance but freedom. This result is that between joyful freedom and reason of the judgement of tasted feeling. Because Art ever created is the spirit of the moral ideals, and those who combine the best of the joy. I think need to more communication and joy than their theories. For poet is replaced to be communicated and joyful for our happiness and freedom.
