Emerson’s work often requires that we trace etymologies?

Do you think it’s necessary in bettering or understanding of the poetry itself? (not only with her work) but with poets in general?

    Yea it’s all good to look stuff up. Then you lose the flow. It’s a give and take game. If the poet selfishly gave, we should be able to selfishly take. I’ll look all that stuff up when I get a chance. “Ain’t nobody got time for dat”- Sweet Brown
