“What has happened, I think, is that, since there is a natural selection among artists as among sea creatures, I am one of the dripping and daydreaming serpents who roared at his tidal death.”

-James Wright in a Letter to Donald Hall, July 25, 1958, from “Wild Perfection: The Selected Letters of James Wright”
