QOTD: May 30 – Mr. Auden, You Are Incorrect

W.H. Auden is incorrect; in no way does a poet have to be passionately in love with language. I have taught Creative Writing courses for more than a decade, and have watched students, who are not passionately in love with language, write some of the most inspiring pieces. It’s not that they love the language, but rather they love the subject, and are willing to speak passionately about it.

Question of the Day:

Are all poets passionately in love with language?
