In the original radio play The Machine (1968), Goethe's poem Wanderer's Nightsong is analysed strictly systematically in an attempt to discover the mechanics of poetry. The strength of this work is that poetry itself is more powerful than any analysis or restructuring. What you experience is the sublime.
