Tate Published

Famous quotes containing the words tate and/or published:

    Alone in the public clearing
    This private thing was owned by all the town,
    Though never claimed by us within my hearing.
    —Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Literature that is not the breath of contemporary society, that dares not transmit the pains and fears of that society, that does not warn in time against threatening moral and social dangers—such literature does not deserve the name of literature; it is only a fa├žade. Such literature loses the confidence of its own people, and its published works are used as wastepaper instead of being read.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)
