Monday Morning Quote: Maxine Kumin on Dreams

Virtually every dream example I call up out of my poems teeters on the border between life and death, this seems quite apt to me, for I feel that poetry is essentially elegiac in its nature. We hold hard to those we love even as they die away from us and we continue to pursue them, through dreams into poems.

—Maxine Kiumin, Always Beginning
