I agree with Interloper. The statement is way too broad... it's also very vague, since the word Muse can invoke dozens of images... loose spiritual references don't work for me... and in this context, sounded a little pretentious... I think people have a tendancy to write vaguely and use wordy veils in an attempt to make themselves sound smarter, or deeper- or, to be less judgemental and biased, I should say to make their message sound more involved than it really is... hold on, there's an Allen Ginsberg poem that explains what I'm saying better than I can: (I hope I don't get edited for copyright infringement.. do i get away with it if I only post part?)
this is from 'On Burroughs Work'
The method must be purest meat
and no symbolic dressing,
actual visions & actual prisons
as seen then and now.
A naked lunch is natural to us,
we eat reality sandwiches.
But allegories are so much lettuce.
Don't hide the madness.
