More From Diane Wakoski
- "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."
- "But I don’t think that poetry is a good, to use a contemporary word, venue, for current events."
- "I definitely wish to distinguish American poetry from British or other English language poetry."
