“Our problem is now before us…The poet’s task will be to find a solution, some point of union, where love’s understanding may be realized in truth, God’s anxiety be set at rest, his sorrow banished. For the divine love is that unfathomable love which cannot rest content with that which the beloved might in his folly prize as happiness.”
