Visionary poetry
and visionary poets are terms whose history harken back to the French poet Arthur Rimbaud (see his quote: "A poet makes himself a visionary through a long, boundless, and systematized disorganization of all the senses") and have been used in a few different contexts within the history of Romanian poetry. It may have been used for the first time to describe Octavian Goga's social-orientated poetry. (Ion Heliade-Rădulescu and especially Mihai Eminescu have also been described as such, but apparently much later.) The term has afterwards been used a few times, but most notably it is used today to describe poets that were (or still are) often described as neo-expressionist or post-expressionist.
