Charles Wright is a wonderful writer and this video gives fascinating insight into his work as a poet and helps me further in finding the answer to the question I posed earlier this week in this post ; Do I Repeat Myself ?
There is a transcript of the video here
“I used to think the power of words was inexhaustible, that how we said the world was how it was and how it would be.
I used to imagine that word-sway and word-thunder would silence the silence and all that, that words were the word, that language could lead us inexplicably to grace, as though it were geographical.
I used to think these things when I was young.
I still do.”
How about you ????
