“The beginning of your true encounter with poetry should be simple. It should bypass all classrooms, all textbooks, courses, examinations and libraries and go straight to the things that make your own existence exist: to your body and nerves and blood and muscles. Find you own way . . . .
“[It] is out there: a handful of gravel is a good place to start. So is an ice cube—what more mysterious and beautiful interior of something has there ever been?”
—James Dickey, poet and novelist, How to Use the Power of the Printed Word, 1985
