Kathleen Norris Quotes: Poetry Was A Discipline Grounded In

Poetry Was A Discipline Grounded In Experience That Drew Its Life And Worth From A Source Much Greater Than Oneself, And As It Realized Its Potential To Touch Others In Their Innermost Being, What [Kathleen] Fraser Has Termed Their "yearning Side," It Could Be A Profoundly Communal Act. Poetry, When It Succeeded, Did So In Ways That Were Not Quantifiable, And Did Not Look Much Like Worldly Success, But That Might Be Summed Up As The Joy On The Face Of A Girl In A Dingy Classroom Who Finds A Kindred Spirit In A Poem By Garcia Lorca.
