Emily Dickinson & poetry

"Emily could never understand why the most intense human experiences had to be relegated to the margins of human society. She read poetry and wrote every day because she needed a daily dose of ecstasy, the elation and exhilaration poetry provides."
~ Edward Hirsch in the American Poetry Review.

And there's something in that for all us mediocre poets.
