“If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.” – George Bernard Shaw

Jane_Hirshfield“You can’t write an image, a metaphor, a story, a phrase, without leaning a little further into the shared world, without recognizing that your supposed solitude is at every point of its perimeter touching some other.”


Jane Hirshfield, Academy of American Poets Chancellor (2012– ).
A final reminder that we will be reading and discussing the use of metaphor in poetry this coming Thursday, November 24. Please see the SCHEDULE PAGE for a list of featured poems.
