Finish the poem first, then worry, if you have to, about being right or sane

Lectures on poetry & writing by Richard Hugo (cont.)

  • Assumptions lie behind the work of all writers.
  • Words love the ridicules areas of our minds.
  • It is important that a poet not question her assumptions, at least not in the middle of composition. Finish the poem first, then worry, if you have to, about being right or sane.
