More From Robert Morgan
- "Our most famous writers are Faulkner and Eudora Welty and Flannery O’Connor. It would make sense that the poetry would reflect some of those same values, some of the same techniques."
- "The young people have MTV and rock and roll. Why would they go to read poetry? Poetry belongs to the Stone Age. It awakens in us perceptions that go back to those times."
- "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."
