"This originality, without which a writer of verses is only a verse-writer, is there any way to attain it? The more advanced contemporary poets were attaining it by going farther and father along the way ... divorcing poetry from reason and ideas, bringing it near to music ... Perhaps this was the means to attain originality: to make a guess which way literature is going, and go there first. This book began to be written three or four years later ... I did not stop to think whether the verses wer original or followed a tendency, or would find a reader. Nor have I every considered whether they deserved to find one."--Preface.
