Neoclassical poetry comes from 18th and 19th century American colonial contributors with conservative values.  It is made up of heroic couplets - two lines of iambic pentameter that rhyme, and each of these couplets is thought to express complete thought and rhyme.  Some features of neoclassical poetry are that man is rational, that man's purpose is to teach and to entertain, and that literature is a craft to be appreciated for its correctness.  This poetry focuses on humans and human qualities.
