"No one cares what blinders you choose to wear and you may call good what you will. But unless the dragon speak it...You may blather in Greek of the wisdom of the ancients to your heart's content and wear the motley of the very church, but if as a poet you do not rouse the dragon within you, unscathed! you are by that so much more the fool."

--William Carlos Williams
View, 1942
