Every poem conveys an experience and attempts to arouse certain feelings in the reader.

A poem may affect different people in a great variety of ways, and it is often impossible to define a poet's "true" intentions. Our interpretation of a poet's aims is, therefore, largely a personal matter, but at the same time it should never be far-fetched. 65. There is a point made in the passage that, in interpreting the aims of a poet in a poem, we should ----. A) first try to understand how the poem may have been written B) always avoid making unlikely comments C) never be guided by our feelings, and use different ways to understand the poem D) completely ignore both the poet's and our own experiences E) carefully study what special feelings the poet may have intended to avoid 66.

The word "Renaissance" means rebirth or revival, and the idea of such a rebirth began to gain ground in Italy from the fourteenth century onwards. When people of the period wanted to praise a poet or an artist, they said that his work was as good as that of the ancients.
