Metaphors and monism

One of the most beautifully written blogs on the net is that of the poet, George Szirtes. In a post on the use of metaphor in the poetry of Robert Frost, he makes a profound criticism of monism.

It is good and proper to be thinking two things at once, to be in suspension, in two places at once. That is the dimension of being human. The stupid and the fanatic are in one place only, with but one thought.

Read it all here – and read the blog regularly.
