“A friend of mine, a mathematician, recently posited to me that the role of poetry was capture intricate emotion; I countered by saying the role of poetry was to convey information through the ordering of words as much as the words themselves. But in both our arguments there was the implicit understanding that there was a poet, some creator with a sense of purpose, be it information or emotion. I wonder if we can have the same argument about this, or whether we have to start that argument again with several biases removed.”
