Famous quotes containing the words denise levertov and/or levertov:

    What did you do with your fear,
    later? Through the years of humiliation,
    of paranoia and blackmail and near-starvation, losing
    the love of those you loved, one after another,
    parents, lovers, children, idolized friends, what kept
    compassion’s candle alight in you....
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    I have seen
    not behind but within, within the
    dull grief, blown grit, hideous
    concrete façades, another grief, a gleam
    as of dew, an abode of mercy....
    —Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
