Marianne Moore’s “Poetry” is written in defense of poetry. In the excerpts, which three lines or phrases reflect Moore’s opinion of what good poetry should be?
. . . to discriminate against "business documents and
school-books"; all these phenomena are important. One must
make a distinction
however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the
result is not poetry,
nor till the poets among us can be
the imagination" —above
insolence and triviality and can present
for inspection, "imaginary gardens with real toads in them," shall
it. In the meantime, if you demand on the one hand,
the raw material of poetry in
all its rawness and
that which is on the other hand
genuine, you are interested in poetry.

Tell your teacher that this is not a very good question. You can't just extract single lines out of context from a good poem like this. The whole poem is a whole argument. Every part has something to do with every other part.
