Can introspection be paraphrased?

Is it the author's own transaction that is important and therefore would define paraphraseableness?

No I think introspection can not be paraphrased, because when you are introspective, you always bring out whatever you want to show. and a paraphrase contains a form one way or the other of averified truth

Great comment P&W. And I would agree that paraphrasing is just too elusive to really exist in real poetry.

Rather disputable.
