on poetry

June 10, 2022

“In 2011, I keep hearing that poetry is irrelevant, and there certainly isn’t much market for it. That doesn’t scare me. Poetry, grounded in the perception of endings, enjambment, and disjunction, is both a defiance of authority and a deposit from a future yet to come.”
Susan Howe
(b. June 10, 1937)
