A Poet Reflects


"In order to experience a poem, we must understand it; in order to understand it we must hear it, see it, contemplate it—convert it into an echo, a shadow, nothingness.  Comprehension is a spiritual exercise."

—Octavio Paz, from “Recapitulations” in Alternating Current (Arcade Publishing, 1990)
