Verse Tragedy

Famous quotes containing the words verse and/or tragedy:

    In verse one can take any damn constant one likes, one can alliterate, or assone, or rhyme, or quant, or smack, only one MUST leave the other elements irregular.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    There are few things more difficult than to appraise the work of a man suddenly dead in his youth; to disentangle “promise” from achievement; to save him from that sentimentalizing which confuses the tragedy of the interruption with the merit of the work actually performed.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
