GRAFF TALKSjON SYMBOLISM
Says Classification of Poetical Sym
bols Fails Through Theology.
POEM IS UNWRITTEN
of Teachers Trntnlnjr
Class That Much Work Is Narrow
in Its Interpretation of Nature
and Is Not Unman,
Speaking on tho -subject of "Symbolism
In Poetry," Superintendent E. U. Graff
of the public schools told tho alumnae of
the teachers' training class yesterday
afternoon at tho city hall that attempts
to scientifically classify symbols had
failed because the work assumed too
much tho direction of theology.
'When literature has a book In which
the symbolism of things Is scientifically
opened, It will be the poem of the world,"
said Superintendent Graff.
In criticising these attempts to "scien
tifically open" tho symbolism of things,
Superintendent Graff said the "theolog
ical bias" fatally 'harrowed tho Inter
pretation of nature and did not leave the
work "universal and human."
"My attenton was first directed to this
subject by a sentence of Emerson, In his
essay on Swedenborg. He is discussing
Swedenborg's doctrine of' representations
ana correspondences, which is. briefly.
that the physical world Is purely sym
bolic of the spiritual world; that If we
express a natural truth In physical
terms and convert these terms Into cor
responding spiritual terms, wo shall, by
this means, elicit a spiritual truth.
"This symbolism, Emerson states, Is
implied In all poetry, In allegory, In fable.
In the uso of emblems, and In the struc
ture of language. The poets, lnasfar as
they are poets, use ltp but it Is known to
them only as the magnet was known for
ages, as a toy.
"And down- to this hour Utcraturo has
no book In which the symbolism of
things Is scientifically opened. Swenden
borg's design of exhibiting such cor
respondences, If adequately executed,
would be the poem of the world, was nar
rowed anddefeatcd by the exclusive theo
logical direction which his inquiries took.
His perception of nature Is not unlverslal
and human, but Is mystical and He
braic. His theological bias thus fatally
narrowed his Interpretation of nature,
and the dictionary of symbols Is yet to
bo written. But the Interpreter whom
mankind must still expect will find no
predecessor who has approached so npar
the true problem."
To show tho part played by symbolism
In literature, Superintendent Griff read
from many poets, pointing" out that 'this
method of explaining and teaching was
a natural tendency. Continuing, he said of
symbolism, literature, poetry, and all
"Even a superficial examination re
veals an extensive use of symbolism
In all our thinking. The mind, penetrated
with this thought, projects it outward on
whatever it beholds. The lovor sees re
minders of his mistress In every beauti
ful object; tho saint an argument for
devotion In every natural process; and
the facility with which nature lends itself
to the thoughts of man; the aptness with
which a river, a flower, a bird, a fire, a
day, or night, can express his fortunes,
is as if the world were only a disguised
man, and, with a change of form, ren
dered to him all his experlenoe,
"This necessity of thinking in comparl
eons, of learning the unknown through
the known, of seeing the Ideal In the real.
I as pervasive of literature and poetry
as it is or our mental life."
