A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #40

“A human body, just dead, is very like a living body except that it no longer contains something that was invisible anyway. In a poem, as in a human body, what is invisible makes all the difference.”

– from “A Wrong Turning in American Poetry” in American Poetry: Wildness and Domesticity by Robert Bly
