Beauty, Light, it happens that people regard them as obsolete, as insignificant. And yet! - The inner step required by the approach of the Angel's form is, in my opinion, infinitely more painful than the other, which gives birth to Demons of all kinds... - Certainly, there is an enigma. Certainly, there is a mystery - But the mystery is not a stage piece turning to account the play of light and shadow only to impress us... - Beauty that is an open path - the only one perhaps - towards that unknown part of ourselves, towards that which surpasses us. There this could be yet another definition of poetry: the art of approaching that which surpasses us... - In the final analysis, where is truth? - In the erosion and death we see around us, or in this propensity to believe that the world is indestructible and eternal? - But the essential has remained. It remains - The poetry that raises itself when rationalism has laid down its arms, takes its relieving troops to advance into the forbidden zone - thus proving that it is still the less consumed by erosion - that it is in the inside of this world that the other world is contained... - that is with the elements of this world that the other world is recombined, the hereafter, that second reality... - situated above the one where we live unnaturally... - It is a question of a reality to which we have a total right, and only our incapacity... - makes us unworthy of it. It is not a coincidence that in healthy times, beauty is identified with good, and good with the Sun (see the sun, which enchants, warms and lets grow everything - together with the rain etc. - d.48)... (O. Elytis, Nobel L. 1979)
