The Vale of Soulmaking: The Post-Kleinian Model of the Mind and its Poetic Origins

Meg Harris Williams

To joie Macaulay, who taught me to read poetry, and to Donald Meltzer, who taught me to read myself

There is an active

Principle in them;

Which is not giving,

Is not receiving;

Is not the forcive

Nor the passive lust;

Which forgives tolerance

And indignation;

Is river and bed:

It is the needle

Point and thread, piercing

All receiving all;

Is identical

Imagination.

Roland J. Harris, “Prologue” to Little Sonnets
