All three are driven to a different state of being through their vocation. Lovers become blind to all but their beloved and their feelings; lunatics go nuts; and poets are driven to a world where art transcends life. All are brought out of the everyday because of whatever quality they possess, and hence become either valuable or dangerous to everyday life.
