But objectivity has to relate to the plot of language and to face an impious time that does not grant advances. It almost seems that nature is carrying decay and death and nothing can be saved: perhaps myth or hope (The Ring). In these poems, it is the germ of a better world: it may be just utopia, and yet it is worth believing.
