THÉOPHILE GAUTIER (7)
And I, I have created 'Émaux et Camées'.
Yes, the work comes out more beautiful from a material that resists the process, verse, marble, onyx, or enamel.
The word poet literally means maker: anything which is not well made doesn't exist.
You do not become a critic until it has been completely established to your own satisfaction that you cannot be a poet.
Art is beauty, the perpetual invention of detail, the choice of words, the exquisite care of execution.
What I write is not for little girls.
I was born to travel and write verse.
