Famous quotes containing the word poetry:

    There is no gilding of setting sun or glamor of poetry to light up the ferocious and endless toil of the farmers’ wives.
    Hamlin Garland (1860–1940)

    Prose—it might be speculated—is discourse; poetry ellipsis. Prose is spoken aloud; poetry overheard. The one is presumably articulate and social, a shared language, the voice of “communication”; the other is private, allusive, teasing, sly, idiosyncratic as the spider’s delicate web, a kind of witchcraft unfathomable to ordinary minds.
    Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
