Famous quotes containing the words muriel rukeyser and/or rukeyser:

    When I wrote of the women in their dances and wildness, it was a mask,
    on their mountain, gold-hunting, singing, in orgy,
    it was a mask; when I wrote of the god,
    fragmented, exiled from himself, his life, the love gone down with song,
    it was myself, split open, unable to speak, in exile from myself.
    ...
    No more masks! No more mythologies!
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    All the strong agonized men
    Wear the hard clothes of war,
    Try to remember what they are fighting for.
    But in dark weeping helpless moments of peace
    Women and poets believe and resist forever.
    —Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)
