A Quote from Simone Weil . . .
“Imaginary evil is romantic and varied; real evil is gloomy, monotonous, barren, boring. Imaginary good is boring; real good is always new, marvelous, intoxicating.”
Dear companions of the blog,
My sense is that meditation on this quote could provide real insight into the dynamics of contemporary poetics.
I’d love to know your thoughts on this analogy.
