Quote of the day

“We fail to notice that popular song writers like Stevie Wonder and Randy Newman, to say nothing of the Beatles, can be dedicated, energetic poets more interesting than many of the weary sophisticates, true-confessors, and randy academics we encounter in the ‘little magazines,’ and that drugstore fiction can often have more to offer than fiction thought to be of a higher class.”

John Gardner, The Art of Fiction

  1. I do so agree with the quote you chosen. Thank you.
    It has often occurred to me how many poetic songwriters there are.
    I will often go in on utube and read the lyrics for that very reason.
