I am confused. Whose view do you mean here? Richards' view, my teacher's view, or my view?
-- none of the above, really -- more a generalized observation prompted by your story -- against language deemed as either irredeemable nonsense or nonsense deemed as incorporating deep meaning -- the polar positions suggested by your anecdote. On the latter point Steve Wolfram may well differ (and with a serious point), but last I looked he is not a poet, or if he is, I have not seen him published as such.

Point taken. Nor mine.

Slithy toves excepted, of course.
