“Poets and prose writers both make metaphors. Meta, the prefix, means something large, an overarching meaning.
A metaphor connects, it opens vistas; it allows people to see what they have previously missed.
In this, metaphors have great power, and poets and prose writers have great influence over language, which, after all, directs us.
We cannot go to places we have no words for.”
