Famous quotes containing the words maxine kumin and/or kumin:

    Until the Women’s Movement, it was commonplace to be told by an editor that he’d like to publish more of my poems, but he’d already published one by a woman that month ... this attitude was the rule rather than the exception, until the mid-sixties. Highest compliment was to be told, “You write like a man.”
    Maxine Kumin (b. 1925)

    With a broad shoehorn
    I am unstuffing a big bird in this dream
    Msomebody else’s holiday feast—
    and repacking the crop of my own,
    knowing it will burst with such
    onion, oyster, savory bread crust.
    —Maxine Kumin (b. 1925)
