"Poetry, the human feeling, the 'kitten', is so crowded out of the humdrum, rushing, mechanical scramble of today that the man who would preserve them must duck and camouflage for dear life to keep himself from annihilation."
-from a letter Hart Crane wrote in 1921, quoted in Madness, Rack, and Honey by Mary Ruefle
In 1921 it was 'mechanical scramble', today it is being 'plugged in'. The preservation was and is worthwhile.
