Quote of the Day (Adam Kirsch, on the Unique Pleasure of Poetry)

“Poetry moves in two directions at once: It wants to communicate, and it wants to play. When a poem does both, it gives a sort of pleasure that no other art form can.” —Adam Kirsch, “Poetry for the Pleasure of It,” The Wall Street Journal, Apr. 14-15, 2018
