KATHLEEN RAINE ~





Counterpoint 
Berkeley
2017






"If, on the other hand one takes not the materialist approach —
man's rights — but the spiritual approach — man's duties — the
poet has his place. It is not the State who should support the
poet, but the poet who should save the State — the poet together
with the saint and all lovers of the three verities. For civiliz-
ation depends finally upon those who give more than they receive."

Bob,

What a nice thing to find this book here and that quote and of course Wendell and Brian Keeble too. Looks like one I'd like very much.

stay close,

Mike
