Reflections on Metaphor and Affects by Arnold H. Modell: A Discussion

J. Gordon Maguire, M.D.


Nature is a temple, where the living

Columns sometimes breathe confusing speech:

Man walks within these groves of symbols, each

Of which regards him as a kindred thing.

As the long echoes, shadowy, profound,

Heard from afar, blend in a unity,

Vast as the night, as sunlight's clarity,

So perfumes, colors, sounds may correspond.

Odors there are, fresh as a baby's skin

Mellow as oboes, green as meadow grass,

—Others corrupted, rich, triumphant, full.

Having dimensions infinitely vast,

Frankincense, musk, ambergris, benjamin,

Singing the senses' rapture, and the soul's.

Charles Baudelaire (circa 1857)

The opportunity to discuss Arnold Modell's chapter, “Reflections on Metaphor and Affects,” is a real treat for me.
