More From Robert Morgan
- "I don’t think poetry is something that can be taught. We can encourage young writers, but what you can’t teach them is the very essence of poetry."
- "One of the most powerful devices of poetry is the use of distortions. You can go from talking about the way a minute passes to the way a century passes, or a lifetime."
- "A poem in form still has to have voice, gesture, a sense of discovery, a metaphoric connection, as any poetry does."

- "I do have 14 tattoos, but I also do come home every single night and watch reality TV with my cat."― Lea Michele
- "I think that great poetry is the most interesting and complex use of the poet’s language at that point in history, and so it’s even more exciting when you read a poet like Yeats, almost 100 years old now, and you think that perhaps no one can really top that."― Diane Wakoski
- "Because, in fact, women, feminists, do read my poetry, and they read it often with the power of their political interpretation. I don’t care; that’s what poetry is supposed to do."― Diane Wakoski
