Housman delivers his influential Leslie Stephen lecture, "The Name and Nature of Poetry", in which he asserts that poetry's function is "to transfuse emotion—not to transmit thought but to set up in the reader's sense a vibration corresponding to what was felt by the writer [...]". He criticizes much of the poetry from the 17th and 18th centuries as deficient in this regard, and condemns Alexander Pope's poetry in particular while praising William Collins, Christopher Smart, William Cowper and William Blake.
