Famous quotes containing the words poetry, ancient and/or greek:

    For me being a poet is a job rather than an activity. I feel I have a function in society, neither more nor less meaningful than any other simple job. I feel it is part of my work to make poetry more accessible to people who have had their rights withdrawn from them.
    Jeni Couzyn (b. 1942)

    Still green with bays each ancient altar stands
    Above the reach of sacrilegious hands,
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    With astonishment Aschenbach noticed that the boy was entirely beautiful.

    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
