More From Diane Wakoski
- "American poetry, like American painting, is always personal with an emphasis on the individuality of the poet."
- "High and low culture come together in all Post Modern art, and American poetry is not excluded from this."
- "From reading a previous answer, you know that I consider all those aspects to be part of American cultural myth and thus they figure into good American poetry, whether the poet is aware of what he is doing or not."
More In Attitude
- "Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill."― Charles R. Swindoll
- "The pilot looked at his cues of attitude and speed and orientation and so on and responded as he would from the same cues in an airplane, but there was no way it flew the same. The simulators had showed us that."― Alan Shepard
- "The townspeople outside the reservations had a very superior attitude toward Indians, which was kind of funny, because they weren’t very wealthy; they were on the fringes of society themselves."― James Welch
