A Seeming Simplicity

More from Laura (Riding) Jackson's The Telling; this is from section [27]:

That the subject of the creation should be...treated...without leave from the theologies or sciences or philosophies, and bare of the benefit of narrative symbolism and the decoration of known names, and the protection of a Name of names, may seem a rash simplicity....However, I am not endeavoring to excite belief, or regale the reading imagination, only to tell what I find to see where my thought takes me.
