Famous quotes containing the words allen tate, allen and/or tate:

    The river, right, tumbled into a cove;
    But the map dashed the road along the stream
    And we dotted man’s fishiest enthymeme
    With jellied feet upon understanding love
    Of what eyes see not, that nourishes the will:
    We were fishers, weren’t we?
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Sailin’ ‘round the world in a dirty gondola
    Oh, to be back in the land of Coca-Cola!
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    Buzzards float upon the sky
    Shrilling a metaphysic cry,
    Machines hum, midgets play,
    Another corpse is hauled away
    Hauled away
    —Allen Tate (1899–1979)
