Quote of the Day | 1124

Wallace Stevens’s poetry is more beautiful, and Robert Frost’s often more powerful, than Eliot’s, but the latter’s, once read, refuses to leave the mind. How much does memorability matter in literature? A vast deal, I suspect, and in poetry above all.

Joseph Epstein, ‘T.S. Eliot and the Demise of the Literary Culture’
