Robert Creeley, in Selected Poems: 1945-1990, writes, "Why poetry? Its materials are so constant, simple, elusive, specific. It costs so little and so much. It preoccupies a life, yet can only find one living. It is a music, a playful construct of feeling, a last word and communion." Mr. Creeley's life-long engagement with poetry is too extensive for this small space but is documented on the Robert Creeley Home Page.
