Degas & Mallarmé : painting, poetry, ideas and creativity

Degas (a painter) was discussing poetry with Mallarmé (a poet);

“It isn’t ideas I’m short of… I’ve got too many”, said Degas.

“But Degas,” replied Mallarmé, “you can’t make a poem with ideas. … You make it with words.”

Game for brain : behind the obvious, what does that mean? What frontier does is draw? Why? What can we find around this? Where to apply it?

Mallarmé answers a painter… as a poet. He did it on purpose, right? How can a Art irrigate another Art?

 

Have a nice day!
