Oral Poet

Famous quotes containing the words oral and/or poet:

    We have seen over and over that white male historians in general have tended to dismiss any history they didn’t themselves write, on the grounds that it is unserious, unscholarly, a fad, too “political,” “merely” oral and thus unreliable.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The poet is the supreme artist, for he is the master of colour and of form, and the real musician besides, and is lord over all life and all arts.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
