Concerning Poetry-a Resumé

Diogenes 25 (100):111-127 (1977)
  Copy   BIBTEX


It goes without saying that my intention is not to remind the reader that poetry exists. Everyone knows it. Instead, I propose to show that it is possible, from which it follows that it is. inevitable and that, being inevitable, it is justified. It is not. enough that a thing exist for it to be legitimate: it could be merely apparent, accidental or insignificant; it. could conceal some trick or have only a temporary justification. Even more, the same word—here, poetry—could have successively designated different activities which in the end had no important relationship with each other.
