Mystic Songs of Fire and Flame free pdf Excerpt from Mystic Songs of Fire and Flame What is inspiration? Plato describes it in Phaedrus as a frenzy seizing the artist, similar to the frenzy which seized the Delphic priestesses when they gave their prophecies. Now the priestess of Apollo prophesied under the control of the god she served. Did Plato mean to indicate that the artist produces his art work under a similar control? The subject of artistic inspiration is approached from a new point of view in this day of fast multiplying books of poetry and of prose purporting to be written automatically. Almost every publishing house now contains such books on its list, and the reading public has long since been convinced of the sincerity of such output, which it first viewed incredulously. A certain style characterizes all such writing - a potent fluency running often into garrulousness, often into turgidness that is almost opaque. At its best such writing is exquisitely beautiful. The same unearthly beauty characterizes the style of one who writes under drug stimulation, as De Quincy and Coleridge- of alcoholics, such as Poe, of so-called insane people, and of people under a powerful religious inspiration. The Suras of Mohammed - illiterate camel driver feeling himself inspired by the Angel Gabriel - had a beauty so potent as to become the criterion for style in all subsequent Arabic literature.
