TT: Almanac

"We hate poetry that has a palpable design upon us--and if we do not agree, seems to put its hand in its breeches pocket. Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's soul, and does not startle or amaze with itself, but with its subject."

John Keats, letter to John Hamilton Reynolds, Feb. 3, 1818
