Robert Pinsky“Poetry makes something happen. The eloquence, the brilliant language, the musical sounds turn out to be going somewhere, toward some discovery or action — sometimes even toward the action of tossing the eloquence or images aside, like a raft that has served its purpose.”
Robert Pinsky
(b. October 20, 1940)
