Lowell's characters in his book discuss poetry and thoughts it expresses. "The style is the most concise which expresses a thought best. Simplicity in expression is not necessary plain or bald." And he compares it to light, which seems simple yet made up of all primary colors. And he adds " And Light is the symbol of truth". Hope it helps. David
