‘The genuine artist does not traffic in fictions. The daemonic powers that he sings, speaks, or forms, are *there.* In plastic embodiment the wave is image *and*event.—The cosmic epic poet reunites that which has been sundered: the epic world-poem to the “ardor of the eye.” He steps out of the modern age and spins the golden threads of the eternal flux. A god and a lightning-bolt will not suffice—the entire history of the gods must unfold before his gaze’ – Ludwig Klages
