Famous quotes containing the words muriel rukeyser and/or rukeyser:

    I am haunted by interrupted acts,
    introspective as a leper, enchanted
    by a repulsive clew,
    a gross and fugitive movement of the limbs.
    Is this the love that shook the lights to flame?
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    The first green night of their dreaming, asleep beneath the Tree,/God said, “Let meanings move,” and there was poetry.
    —Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)
