"Maybe all poetry, insofar as it moves us and connects with us, is a revealing of something that the writer doesn't actually want to say but desperately needs to communicate, to be delivered of. Perhaps it's the need to keep it hidden that makes it poetic—makes it poetry."
— Ted Hughes (1930-1998) "Ted Hughes, The Art of Poetry No. 71," The Paris Review (Spring 1995)
|In Bed The Kiss by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1892)|
