"The 'poet'? In the cultural (main-)stream of society, he or she is something like a municipal employee [. . .] Poet in the city, in the margins, incompetent in all things (since Ion, because of Socrates), slightly out of touch (often described as 'absent-minded'); powerless, not 'with it,' except at the epideictic fringe of occasional ceremonies, the poet will sometimes, for a brief while, feebly defend his or her rarefied employment." Michel Deguy • Sibila
