About Poetry

"Poetry has done what long seemed impossible... it has become indispensable reading for anyone who cares about American literature."
Adam Kirsch, New York Sun

"To converse with the greats
by trying their blindfolds on:
to correspond with books
by rewriting them:
to edit holy edicts,
and at the midnight hour
to talk with the clock by tapping a wall
in the solitary confinement of the universe."

Vera Pavlova, To Converse with the Greats
