In The Miracle of Language Richard Lederer devotes two chapters to Poetry (three chapters if you count his chapter on The Legacy of T. S. Eliot). Sprinkled within these chapters are more than a few quotes about poetry. I have selected fifteen of my favorites to share with you here.
I make it a point to read a book of poetry at least once each year. I know that I probably didn’t like cabbage the first time that I ate it, but I love it now. So, I am hoping that through continued exposure I will develop the same kind of taste for poetry.
