Friday Philosophy

I'll buy this notion from the poet Dylan Thomas (1914-1953), but argue that it is equally true of a good painting or piece of music:

"A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone's knowledge of himself and the world around him."
