W.H. AUDEN (1907 - 1973) 2

Poetry might be defined as the clear expression of mixed feelings.

A poet will always have a sneaking regard for luck because he knows the role which it plays in poetic composition. Something unexpected is always turning up, and though he knows that the Censor (in him) has to pass it, the memory of the lucky dip is what he treasures.
