“You have to listen to your own voice. Not your heart, not your instincts, not any of that self-permissive psycho-babble stuff. No, none of that. If it was just about instincts and bright ideas it wouldn’t need to be a voice. It’s about words. You hear them, read them, then you write. But mostly read. Read the bloody poems.”
—Fleur Adcock, from an interview by Sally Vincent published in The Guardian, Sat 29 Jul 2000
E LER, MORMENTE. LER OS POEMAS DE SANGUE!
