Help me with a sentence
Can someone help me with a sentence, please?

    The following is a paragraph from an article on ´grooming ´ written by Desmond Morris. Can you explain the last sentence, "The poet paralelled the painter."?

I am lost!

A third form of verbalization is exploratory talking. This is talking for talking’s sake, aesthetic talking, or, if you like, play talking. Just as that other form of information—transmission, picture-making, became used as a medium for aesthetic exploration, so did talking. The poet paralleled the painter.

the painter paints pictures, the  poet with his words has painted pictures in our mind so he has = the painter

This sentence expresses exactly what I feel about writting ... to me, writting is like painting.
Poets and painters are side by side but they can become one if they do both ;)
I ´ve written a poem about that but it ´s in french, it ´s called "Activité Créative"
