This is a great book. Very high scholarship and thorough research. One of the most influential books I've read. The author makes a clear distinction between the common word "poetry" and that POETRY that is at the very heart and center of all creative enterprise. ------------------------ "Poetry, with which this book is fundamentally concerned, is the free creativity of the spirit, and the intuitive knowledge through emotion, which transcend and permeate all arts, inasmuch as they tend toward beauty as an end beyond the end. Then poetry, like Plato?s mousike, is taken in a primary, most universal sense. (pg. 393)" ------------------------- This a book you'll want to own and read time and time again. A virtual well-spring of inspiration and joy.
