Famous quotes containing the word poem:

    It has been played once more. I think you exist only
    To tease me into doing it, on your level, and then you aren’t there
    Or have adopted a different attitude. And the poem
    Has set me softly down beside you. The poem is you.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The poem goes from the poet’s gibberish to
    The gibberish of the vulgate and back again.

    At once? Is it a luminous flittering
    Or the concentration of a cloudy day?
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    A bad short story or novel or poem leaves one comparatively calm because it does not exist, unless it gets a fake prestige through being mistaken for good work. It is essentially negative, it is something that has not come through. But over bad criticism one has a sense of real calamity.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)
