There are certain passages in 4Q which, if by a mystic poet, would be simply
bad writing. But as written by a _non-mystic_, but in some ways pointing
_towards_ mystical experience, are really rather impressive. One of them, if
I recall correctly, are the lines in Burnt Norton re the winds that blow
before and after time; also the passage on the London subway. But if one
were to regard these as in fact a mystic trying to express his/her _own_
mystic experience would be a complete failure.
