  • Rainer Maria Rilke famously said:  "If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches."
  • So, partly as a result of having internalized these attitudes through growing up with them, and partly as a result of growing a skin to protect myself against them, I went for years half-avoiding and half- resisting the opulence and extensiveness of poets as different as Wallace Stevens and Rainer Maria Rilke; crediting insufficiently the crystalline inwardness of Emily Dickinson, all those forked lightnings and fissures of association; and missing the visionary strangeness of Eliot.
