". .. in common with the others, I received from America a request that I would define poetry. I replied that I could no more define poetry than a terrier can define a rat, but that I thought we both recognized the symptoms which it provokes in us."---A. E. Housman, from Creators on Creating, edited by Frank Barron, Alfonso Montuori, and Anthea Barron
