More From Thom Gunn
- "There have been two popular subjects for poetry in the last few decades: the Vietnam War and AIDS, about both of which almost all of us have felt deeply."
- "I had assumed that I would age with all my friends growing old around me, dying off very gradually one by one. And here was a plague that cut them off so early."
- "Deep feeling doesn’t make for good poetry. A way with language would be a bit of help."
