On the unity of all things

Richard Wilbur, one of great living Emersonian poets, had this to say about  the nature of poetry:

 “I think that all poets are sending religious messages, because poetry is, in such great part, the comparison of one thing to another… and to insist, as all poets do, that all things are related to each other, comparable to each other, is to go toward making an assertion of the unity of all things.”

We can alwys tell when a poet or writer is “Emersonian” by their grasp of  unity.
