Socrates claims that he was right to banish the imitative poet from the ideal city since the imitative poet “arouses, nourishes, and strengthens this [the inferior or irrational] part of the soul and so destroys the rational one” (605B). Explain as clearly as you can how, according to Socrates, imitative poetry, and tragedy in particular, gratifies and strengthens the irrational part of the soul. What does the imitative poet imitate? What sort of thing is the imitation he produces? And to what part of the soul does his imitation appeal, and why? Finally, explain how, according to Socrates, imitative poetry can corrupt even the decent or good person (605C).
