In achieving their epic theme, the familiarization of the muse by the Lesbian poet is essential, for it is that crucial metaphoric relationship which makes the woman at home in the poet, able to create new worlds through the power an integrated self.

 apocalypse   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
I think we would look to the organs of spiritualism, Jungianism, neo-paganism, etc. for the current of changes which neo-romantic poets of the later period absorbed, and which their readers were quite familiar with.
The poets did not — they were like fish out of water, aware that the old European culture had died but uncertain about a new life-space which could shelter them.
The eclipse of New Romantic poets by talentless academic critics is thus part of a larger and tragic story in which literati became unable to write poetry and new poetry ceased to play a role in the life of the reading public.

To the poet, the scientist seems unimaginative and literal-minded—with his head buried in the ground of facts, incapable of comprehending the larger significance of what he does.
To the scientist, the poet seems to have his head up in the clouds, indulging in fantastic visions of what might be and losing sight of the way things really are.

As an Arab-American poet and one familiar with the works of most contemporary Arab poets I would both agree and disagree with what was said.
