Consider:The impact of poetry is so hard and direct that for the moment there is no other sensation except that of the poem itself. What profound depths we visit then- how sudden and complete is our immersion! There is nothing here to catch hold of; nothing to stay us in our flight…The poet is always our contemporary. Our being for the moment is centered and constricted, as in any violent shock of personal emotion.
-Virginia Woolf, “How Should One Read a Book?”
