Anthony Hecht

American poet and critic
Children know from a remarkably early age that things are being kept from them, that grown-ups participate in a world of mysteries.More Anthony Hecht quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Mysteries, like the Masonic rites, are ones parents and elders are sworn not to reveal to the uninitiated, which include all children. And so we sought for signs.More Anthony Hecht quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If the heart has its reasons, perhaps the body
Has its own lumbering sort of carnal spirit,
Felt in the tingling bruises of collision,
And known to captains as esprit de corps.More Anthony Hecht quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A lot of the fun lies in trying to penetrate the mystery; and this is best done by saying over the lines to yourself again and again, till they pass through the stage of sounding like nonsense, and finally return to a full sense that had at first escaped notice.More Anthony Hecht quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Brilliant. [Lasdun] seems to me certainly among the most gifted, vivid, and deft poets now writing in English, and far better than many who are more famous. His capacities are solidly established; his promise is nearly infinite.More Anthony Hecht quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
