Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

I like to see visible indications of mentality in poems: the poem proceeding intelligently as well as sensefully. But I prefer that the subject matter not be the intelligence…We know now that poetry is a quality of imagination and language inextricably bound up with the recognizable world. We know that it’s a kind of flying, that it gets up and goes.

Marvin Bell, “The Impure Every Time”
