Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away.” — Carl Sandburg, from The Atlantic, March 1923. “It is a test [that] genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.” — T. S. Eliot, from the essay "Dante." “Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity.” — William Wordsworth, from "Preface to Lyrical Ballads." “We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.” — William Butler Yeats, from PER AMICA SILENTIA LUNAE. Poetry is the deification of reality. – Edith Sitwell Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. – Kahlil Gibran To find beauty in ugliness is the province of the poet. – Thomas Hardy Poetry is the only art people haven’t yet learnt to consume like soup. – W. H. Auden Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat. – Robert Frost Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance. – Carl Sandburg Poetry is life distilled. – Gwendolyn Brooks Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. – Edgar Allan Poe There is no Frigate like a Book / To take us Lands away, / Nor any Coursers like a Page / Of prancing Poetry. – Emily Dickinson If you tell a novelist, ‘Life’s not like that’, he has to do something about it. The poet simply replies, ‘No, but I am.’ – Philip Larkin As a poet I would say everything should be able to come into a poem but I can’t put toothbrushes in a poem. I really can’t. – Sylvia Plath
