“The lunatic, the lover, and the poet
Are of imagination all compact :
One sees more devils than vast hell can hold
That is, the madman : the lover, all as frantic,
Sees Helen's beauty in a brow of Egypt.
The poet's eye, in a tine frenzy rolling,
Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven:
And, as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen.
Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.”- Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 5.
