Poetry As Insurgent Art

I just recently bought a copy (which is also signed) of the title mentioned above and I have really enjoyed some of Ferlinghetti‘s views and outlooks on how a poet treat and approach and love their art, what a poet should be and others on how to approach their lives and to think with their hearts, and how to be caring and loving…Oh I love it.

Here are some quotes that I really like thus far:

“Through art, create order out of the chaos of living.”

“Strive to change the world in such a way that there’s no further need to be a dissident.”

“Read between the lives and write between the lines.”

“Pursue the White Whale but don’t harpoon it. Catch its song instead.”
