The work of the artist in the particular is to discover the universal.

The poetic experience is like religious experience. It is an

act of communion with God.

A poem is religious not because of its content  but  because of its intent.

It intends contact with human experience on the deepest  level possible.

Through words the presence of the Word. Have none told you everything is prayer
