True, in an age like the present,-considerably more scientific than poetical,-science substitutes for the smaller poetry of fiction, the great poetry of truth  (Great Poetry Quotes) Shakespeare wrote great poetry and preposterous plays. Who really cares, for example, which petty tyrant rules Milan? Or who succeeds to the throne of Denmark? Or why the barons ganged up on Richard II?  (Great Poetry Quotes) There are few greater treasures to be acquired in youth than great poetry-and prose-stored in the memory.

But poetry, the country cousin, sees only the dearth of the fields  (Great Poetry Quotes) Epic poetry exhibits life in some great symbolic attitude. It cannot strictly be said to symbolize life itself, but always some manner of life  (Great Poetry Quotes) If our goal is to write poetry, the only way we are likely to be any good is to try to be as great as the best  (Great Poetry Quotes) I was intoxicated by the romantic poetry of our great writers. I arranged the world according to my private use, looking at it through the poems I had devoured  (Great Poetry Quotes) I am not ridiculing verbal mechanisms, dreams, or repressions as origins of poetry; all three of them and more besides may have a great deal to do with it  (Great Poetry Quotes) Not all poetry wants to be storytelling.
