I, too, dislike it: there are things that are important beyond all

   this fiddle.

  Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt for it, one

     discovers in

  it after all, a place for the genuine.

   Hands that can grasp, eyes

   that can dilate, hair that can rise

     if it must, these things are important not because a

high-sounding interpretation can be put upon them but because

   they are

  useful.  When they become so derivative as to become


  the same thing may be said for all of us, that we

   do not admire what

   we cannot understand: the bat

     holding on upside down or in quest of something to

eat, elephants pushing, a wild horse taking a roll, a tireless wolf


  a tree, the immovable critic twitching his skin like a horse that

     feels a

   flea, the base-

  ball fan, the statistician--

  nor is it valid

     to discriminate against 'business documents and

school-books'; all these phenomena are important.  One must

   make a distinction

  however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the

     result is not poetry,

  nor till the poets among us can be

   'literalists of

   the imagination'--above

     insolence and triviality and can present

for inspection, 'imaginary gardens with real toads in them', shall

   we have

  it.  In the meantime, if you demand on the one hand,

  the raw material of poetry in

   all its rawness and

   that which is on the other hand

     genuine, you are interested in poetry.
