Stephen Dobyns
“A work of art gives testimony to what it is to be a human being. It bears witness, it extracts meaning. A work of art is also the clearest nonphysical way that emotions is communicated from one human being to another. The emotion isn't referred to; it is re-created. The emotion shows us that our most private feelings are in fact shared feelings. And this offer us some relief from our existential isolation.
(p: 10)”
Stephen Dobyns, Best Words, Best Order: Essays on Poetry

Leonard Gardner
“Out in the fog, weary, yet buoyant from the drinks, his mind dulled along with his aches and his energy returning, Tully was free of the sense of impending ordeal that had been with him for weeks. He felt whole, self-sufficient, felt his life had at last opened up and that now nothing stood between him and the future's infinite possibilities.”
Leonard Gardner, Fat City

Rebecca West

Rebecca West

Maggie Nelson

James Joyce
“Loud, heap miseries upon us yet entwine our arts with laughters low!”
