inner ecstasy

Poetry remakes and prolongs language; every poetic language begins by being a secret language, that is, the creation of a personal universe, of a completely closed world. The purest poetic act seems to re-create language from an inner experience that … reveals the essence of things.
—  Mircea Eliade, from Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy (Penguin/Arkana, 1989)
