More From Allen Tate
- "I am not ridiculing verbal mechanisms, dreams, or repressions as origins of poetry; all three of them and more besides may have a great deal to do with it."
- "Religion is the sole technique for the validating of values."
- "Narcissism and the Confederate dead cannot be connected logically, or even historically; even were the connection an historical fact, they would not stand connected as art, for no one experiences raw history."
More In Poetry
- "The political health of Britain has deteriorated very sharply. The Conservative Party must do something about it. I am the man to do it."― Kenneth Clarke
- "I work on words, mostly, toward them being poetry or short stories, and then some of those become songs. They all find their place in the world, but they all start off in the same place. I’m always painting and drawing as well, and it’s an ongoing creative assignment."― P. J. Harvey
- "I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition."― Paul Dirac
