Poet A.E. Housman photographed by E.O. Hoppé“Even when poetry has a meaning, as it usually has, it may be inadvisable to draw it out. ‘Poetry gives most pleasure,’ said Coleridge, ‘when only generally and not perfectly understood’; and perfect understanding will sometimes almost extinguish pleasure.”
A.E. Housman
