“I make one image—though ‘make’ is not the right word; I let, perhaps, an image be ‘made’ emotionally in me and then apply to it what intellectual & critical forces I possess—let it breed another, let that image contradict the first, make, of the third image bred out of the other two together, a fourth contradictory image, and let them all, within my imposed formal limits, conflict.” – Dylan Thomas

I found this quote on http://www.poets.org/poet.php/prmPID/150

I began researching Dylan Thomas because a line from one of his poems was read at Jane’s funeral, but this quote seemed more applicable to our discussions in class than that poem.
