“There is a wholeness of what we are that we will never know; we are always, as the line or phrase or the word is, the moment of that wholeness—an event; but it, the wholeness of what we are, goes back into an obscurity and extends to and into an obscurity. The obscurity is part too of the work, of the form, if it be whole.”

(from Robert Duncan's biographical notes in The New American Poetry)
