“[T]he work of the poet is not to say what happened, but what sorts of things would happen and are possible according to probability or necessity… And so poetry is a more philosophical and a more serious thing than history, for poetry speaks of generalities while history speaks of particulars” (Aristotle, Poetics 1451a36-1451b7).
