Only within the limits of that world is it possible to have the well-defined and stable images by which it is possible to reflect eternal concepts. Because poetry is the expressive principle of matter such as the art of form in its most restricted meaning, mythology is absolute poetry, or, perhaps, spontaneous poetry. 17 Schelling places the accent on the aesthetic and spontaneous aspect of myth and sees in mythology the “primordial matter from which everything is derived,” a “world of primary images”—that is, the primordial element, base, and paradigm of all poetry and art.
