“We both have got a body in a bath,
We both have got a body in a bath—

“To name an object is to do away with the three-quarters of the enjoyment of the poem which is derived from the satisfaction of guessing little by little : to suggest it, to evoke it – that is what charms the imagination”.
Edmund Wilson quoting Mallarmé, in Axel’s Castle, A study of the imaginative literature of 1870-1930, Farrar, Straus and Giroux Editions, p18
