A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on reverie, poetry, consciousness, writing, and composition

The reverie we intend to study is poetic reverie. This is a reverie which poetry puts on the right track, the track an expanding consciousness follows. This reverie is written, or, at least, promises to be written. It is already facing the great universe of the blank page. Then images begin to compose and fall into place.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)
