"Most writers- poets in especial- prefer having it understood that they compose by a species of fine frenzy- an ecstatic intuition- and would positively shudder at letting the public take a peep behind the scenes, at the elaborate and vacillating crudities of thought- at the true purposes seized only at the last moment- at the innumerable glimpses of idea that arrived not at the maturity of full view- at the fully-matured fancies discarded in despair as unmanageable- at the cautious selections and rejections- at the painful erasures and interpolations- in a word, at the wheels and pinions- the tackle for scene-shifting- the step-ladders, and demon-traps- the c**k's feathers, the red paint and the black patches, which, in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, constitute the properties of the literary histrio."

"Imagery, in combination with tone, diction, etc..., helps to convey the atmosphere of a poem, and therefore, all imagery in a poem must enhance or develop the mood. Imagery must not be used just for the mere purpose of "showing off" eloquence (or lack thereof), for if it is, it turns the poem into a convoluted mess of words rather that the beautiful "charm" it's meant to be."

"Edgar Allan Poe may have inspired me to start writing poetry, but if it wasn't for Paul Laurence Dunbar, I would've quit writing long ago."
