There's something to be said in favor of working in
isolation in the real world.
- A. R. Ammons

to the unknown, and returns us to our rational,
structured selves refreshed.

All that has been said about poetry,
all that he has learned about poetry,
is only a partial assurance.

A poem generated by its own laws may be unrealized
and bad in terms of so-called objective principles of taste,
judgement, deduction.

Once every five hundred years or so,
a summary statement about poetry comes along that we
can't imagine ourselves living without.

For though we often need to be restored to the small,
concrete, limited, and certain, we as often need to
be reminded of the large,

seeking so that the analogy is first of all between
the external and the internal.

Definition, rationality, and structure are ways of seeing,
but they become prisons when they blank out other ways of seeing.
- A. R. Ammons

Probably all the attention to poetry results in some value,
though the attention is more often directed to lesser than to greater values.
- A. R. Ammons

Besides the actual reading in class of many poems,
I would suggest you do two things: first,
while teaching everything you can and keeping free of it,
teach that poetry is a mode of discourse that differs from logical exposition.
- A. R. Ammons

I can't tell you where a poem comes from,
what it is, or what it is for: nor can any other man.

a poem is to go past telling,
to be recognised by burning.
- A. R. Ammons

working with his friends.

order, meaning, structure, rationality:
they are necessary to whatever provisional stability we have,
and they can be the agents of gradual and successful change.
- A. R. Ammons

as with a sonnet -

the same from day to day,
as the poet's health, sight, his anticipations,
moods, fears, thoughts cannot be the same.

things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe PHOTO

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men

to choose one's own way.
