Quotes about Poetry 3

  • I have a new method of poetry. All you got to do is look over your notebooks . . . or lay down on a couch, and think of anything that comes into your head, especially the miseries. . . . Then arrange in lines of two, three or four words each, don't bother about sentences, in sections of two, three or four lines each. --Allen Ginsberg
  • Every poem of value must have a residue [of language]. . .. It cannot be exhausted because our lives are not long enough to do so. Indeed, in the greatest poetry, the residue may seem to increase as our experience increases- that is, as we become more sensitive to the particular ignitions in its language. We return to a poem not because of its symbolic [or sociological] value, but because of the waste, or subversion, or difficulty, or consolation of its provision. --William Logan
  • All things can tempt me from this craft of verse:
    One time it was a woman's face, or worse-
    The seeming needs of my fool-driven land. --William Butler Yeats
  • Every age has its own poetry; in every age the circumstances of history choose a nation, a race, a class to take up the torch by creating situations that can be expressed or transcended only through poetry. --Jean Paul Sartre
  • I invented the colors of the vowels!- A black, E white, I red, O blue, U green- I made rules for the form and movement of each consonant, and, and with instinctive rhythms, I flattered myself that I had created a poetic language accessible, some day, to all the senses. --Arthur Rimbaud
  • It seems just possible that a poem might happen
    To a very young man: but a poem is not poetry-
    That is a life. --T. S. Eliot
