However, what Dorothy Baker is describing as self-reflexive poetry is not merely "versified criticism," as Wellek has described the classical Ars Poetica. It is a new form of poetic self-questioning which both Baker and Wellek associate with modern poetry. Baker calls it self-reflexive poetry, and Wellek before her had used the term "metapoetry" to distinguish this modern questioning from the didactic discursive Ars Poetica of earlier periods. What makes the metapoetry of the modern period distinct is that it rises from a questioning of the status and role' of the poet in the modern world.
