Don't be alarmed by the philosophical and psychological terminology in this book. Bachelard illuminates what is essential to understand - why certain poems resonate so deeply. The wellspring of images produced by a poet's imagination resonate because they touch on the very doorstep - and dwell within - the mansion of the soul. Bachelard demonstrates how space is occupied by these images and creates for the poet a vast wealth of examples of how to find these resonating places within and without that will inspire and bring to the imagination a torrent of potential poetry.
