William Blake was once asked to interpret a particularly obscure passage in one of his poems. He responded, “When I wrote that verse, only God and I knew the meaning of that passage. Now, only god knows.”

What is the point of Blake’s response?

A. God is infinitely wiser than human beings.
B. Most people are unable to understand poetry.
C. Poets rarely know the source of their own creative inspiration.
D. A great poem is inspired by the muse.
E. He has forgotten what he had originally meant by the verse.

Only C & E are competitive. C generalizes too much and talks about poets rather than William Blake.

Answer should be E.

God and William Blake knew.

Now only God knows.

So William Blake has forgotten

What a bad question! Totally not GMAT worthy....
I was thinking about not answering this since its going to skew up my thought process for good GMAT questions but I will be sporty and say answer is E.
