In which Durrell writes, inter alia

'Nonsense is never just nonsense; it is more like good sense with all 
the logic removed. ... Poems don't describe, but they are 
sounding-boards which enable the alert consciousness to pick up the 
reverberations of the extra-causal reality for itself. ... The words 
carry in them complete submerged poems; as you read your memory goes 
down like the loud pedal of a piano, and all your tribal, personal, 
associations begin to reverberate.'

Poems sound like a psychoanalytic procedure.
