W. o’ W.: Adonis (Ali Ahmad Said Esber)

“Poetry cannot change society. Poetry can only change the notion of relationships between things. Culture cannot change without a change in institutions.”

“Poetry that reaches all the people is essentially superficial. Real poetry requires effort because it requires the reader to become, like the poet, a creator. Reading is not reception. I suggest you change your relationship to poetry and art in general.”
