Robert Lowell, the poet, once said ” Meaning varies in importance from poem to poem, and from style to style, but it is always only an element in the brute flow of composition. Other elements are pictures that please or thrill for themselves, phrases that ring for their music or carry some buried suggestions. For all this the author is an opportunist, throwing whatever comes to hand into his feeling for start, continuity, contrast, climax and completion. It is imbecile of him not to know his intentions, and unsophisticated for him to know too explicitly and fully.”

Thanks for listening.
