Later poets and aestheticians often distinguished poetry from, and defined it in opposition to, prose, which was generally understood as writing with a proclivity to logical explication and a linear narrative structure.

 Essays and Papers on POETRY: ENGLISH Research Papers, Essays, and Term Papers
This poetry was produced by a group of poets of the seventeenth century, called the metaphysical poets by critics Herbert Grierson and T.S. Eliot because the poets showed certain similarities in their philosophical conception of the universe and in the way they expressed this philosophical view in their poetry (Lanstaff and Kermode 14).
In the study of literature, the term "Metaphysical" refers to a type of poetry initiated by John Donne in the early seventeenth century--it is characterized by "conceits," elaborate, sustained metaphors (Abrams, 1993, 1081).
Grierson offers a definition when he states that metaphysical poetry is poetry which "has been inspired by a philosophical conception of the universe and the role assigned to the human spirit in the great drama of existence" (Grierson 3).
