Poesi

A poet is a servant of Eros who: «interprets between gods and men, conveying and talking across to the gods the prayers and sacrifices of men, and to the men the commands and replies of the gods; he is the mediator who spans the chasm which divides them, and therefore in him all is bound together, and through him the arts of the prophet and the priest, their sacrifices and mysteries and charms, and all prophecy and incantation, find their way.»

Plato in The Symposion
