"Nowadays we suppose that poetry and philosophy are quite separate activities; that philosophy is a more exact and abstract and an examination of things, logically and coolly and detachedly, whereas poetry is some sort of mysterious and mystical intuition that anyone can attain into the nature of things.
But of course the ancients had no such view as that. The early philosophies were all expressed in poetry or at least in verse and there was not that distinction that we draw today between philosophy and poetry or science and art ... incidentally, and somewhat contradictorily, I didn't like poetry when I was young. My critics may not be surprised to hear that, since they might contend that my attempts to essay poetry have not always been successful ... That was, of course, until I realised again that poetry is much closer to prose, much closer to philosophy and to damn solid talk, speeches and sloganeering, than we suppose."
