“Poetry is the attempt to represent, or to restore, by means of articulated language, those things or that thing, which cries, tears, caresses, kisses, and so on obscurely try to express.” Paul Valery


"One instinctively believes that in poetry language reveals its true essence, which lies completely in the power to evoke, to call forth mysteries that it cannot express, to do what it cannot say, to create emotions or states that cannot be represented – in a word to be linked to profound existence by doing it rather than saying it." Maurice Blanchot
