My family was not nationally known as being a literary family, though my mother and my mother’s side of the family in general were interested in literature  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) Politics is there the way men and women are there, the way the Atlantic Ocean is there.

It’s hard to know what role criticism plays in either encouraging poets or in getting other people to read them  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) When you finish a poem, it clicks shut like the top of a jewel box, but prose is endless. I haven’t experienced an awful lot of clicking shut!  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) It’s a well known thing that ordinary perceptions can have a strange aspect when one is travelling  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) It’s enormously cheering to get a good review by someone who seems to understand your work  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) One trouble with a kind of falsely therapeutic and always reassuring attitude that it is easy to fall into with old people, is the tendency to be satisfied with too little  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) If you want to know how much I love and care for you, count the waves  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) Picasso said once when being interviewed that one should not be one’s own connoisseur  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) Poetry, which is written while no one is looking, is meant to be looked at for all time  (Kenneth Koch Quotes) I don’t think the nature of my poetry is satirical or even ironic, I think it’s essentially lyrical but again I don’t know if it’s my position to say what my poetry is like  (Kenneth Koch Quotes)
