He held that the simplest strategy to ameliorate obvious contradictions in dualistic conflicts was once in the course of the "play" of metaphorical pondering and feeling. Metaphors integrated parables, allegories, fables, pictures, symbols, irony, and the types and methods of poetry comparable to rhyme, rhythm, assonance, dissonance, personifications, and connotations. those are the arsenal from which poets draw their insightful metaphors, yet such metaphors also are the typical estate of each general individual. A poem is "a short-term remain opposed to confusion," a kind of revelation for "a explanation of life," yet now not a last, absolute resolution to the mysteries and complexities in man's existence on the earth. So too - at their top - are technological know-how, faith, philosophy, schooling, politics, and scholarship as a method of ameliorating human problems.
