[Auszug]

 

Mr. Storer was feeling his way to a poetry that should be the pure expression in beauty of a passionate mood, having the sudden delight of a stretch of bluebells glimpsed for one moment in the deep cool green of a wood, or of the three rich notes of some hidden bird, in absolute poetry, almost the metaphysic of poetry, stripped of all the trappings of argument and description, – a revolt against turgid romanticism, which is the imagination drunk and flaunting in tinsel and crimson velvet, – a striving for an expression which would be the pure essence of divination. One must make a difference in one's mind between the gaudy vestiture of Victor Hugo's enormous torrent of commonplace and the piercing divination of (say) Coleridge's vision: romanticism, the first, the other may be called symbolism. I see romanticism behind footlights; symbolism as a sharp sword of light stretching through darkness. The whole difference lies between Delacroix's pictures and Blake's radiant, winged-wingless figures. I do not mean to say that Mr. Storer would be a symbolist in this deep and mighty sense of the word; so far as I gathered from his book, "Mirrors of Illusion," he was aiming at a form of expression, like the Japanese, in which image is the resonant heart of an exquisite moment; he seems for the time being to have abandoned the quest of the absolute.
