hey, you can use get.text() method to get the string from the particular section of the website. 

Here is the program that I used and it worked pretty well.

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver","C:\\Users\\priyj_kumar\\Downloads\\chromedriver.exe");
WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
driver.get("https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page");
String str = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='mp-tfa']/p")).getText();
System.out.println(str);

This way you can get the string from the website.
