Private and public

Interviewer to poet

‘You make work in private, but once it goes public, readers make it their own. They define the work—and, by extension, you—in terms of who they are, what they want or believe. ‘

David L. Ulin, interviewing poet Claudia Rankine, The Paris Review The Art of Poetry No. 102
