Nemerov, Howard

  • For a Jewish Puritan of the middle class, the novel is serious, the novel is work, the novel is conscientious application--why, the novel is practically the retail business all over again.

  • Obvious enough that generalities work to protect the mind from the great outdoors; is it possible that this was in fact their first purpose?

  • I've never read a political poem that's accomplished anything. Poetry makes things happen, but rarely what the poet wants.

  • The only way out is the way through, just as you cannot escape from death except by dying.
