Poetry and Meaning

Poetry is the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal but which the reader recognizes as his own.
Salvatore Quasimodo
So when he shares it with the world isn't he recognizing that there is nothing truly unique about his own experience? Isn't that act an acknowledgement of our shared condition?

The experience is still be unique yet vicariously shared.
