A Century of Trenza/Against Manifesto

Another great article on Stanley Kunitz who turns 100 tomorrow. This is where I'd be if I had money. Carry on!

“The Wild Braid” concludes with Kunitz speaking of poetry, and artwork generally, as a gift, freely given “in acknowledgement of the gift you have been given, which is life itself. … That work is not an expression of the desire for praise or recognition, or prizes, but the deepest manifestation of your gratitude for the gift of life.”

Thanks, Anne, for this link: at Land Mammal & check out Anne's poem, Race Point while you're there.
