a GREAT PERFORMANCES special
Poets...are not only the authors of language and music, of the dance, and architecture, and the statuary, and painting; they are the institutors of laws, and the founders of civil society,
and the inventors of the arts of life, and the teachers.....

-Percy Bysshe Shelly, from A DEFENCE OF POETRY
