"It strikes me that it would be disingenuous, or at the least in dubious taste, to offer any apologia for what follows. However, I would ask my gentle readers to remember that, as I have said elsewhere, ‘…the poet is a celebrant, or he is nothing.’ Certainly, the vexed relations of Eros and Sophia remain problematical as ever. Certainly, to be transported is not, alas, to be transfigured: most of us will have suffered sexual ecstasy; few of us are Saints.”
