It is not the poet’s business to save man’s soul but to make it worth saving . . . However, few poets have written with a clear theory of art for art’s sake, it is by that theory alone that their work has been, or can be, judged; -and rightly so if we remember that art embraces all life and all humanity, and sees in the temporary and fleeting doctrines of conservative or revolutionary only the human grandeur or passion that inspires them.
