"The saint proves his vision by stepping cheerfully into the fires.  The poet, somewhat less spectacularly, proves his vision by submitting it to the fires of irony, in the hope that the fires will refine it.  In other words, the poet wishes to indicate that his vision has been earned, that it can survive reference to the contradictions of experience."
