Poets say the darndest things

A little entry from Papercuts, the New York Times blog about books, about Quote Poet Unquote: Contemporary Quotations on Poets and Poetry by Dennis O’Driscoll.

A great quote that isn't included in the Times entry but is featured on the book's page:

"I started a PhD in English at the University of Chicago because I loved poetry-which I now realize is like saying I studied vivisection because I loved dogs."
- Michael Donaghy, Verse
