Poetry Quote of the Day: Tommasco Ceva

In trying to bring you some poetry quotes you might not have heard before, I find myself dipping again into How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry

"Poetry is a dream dreamed in the presence of reason." ---attributed by Edward Hirsch to Jesuit poet Tommasco Ceva

This post is part of my Poetry Quote a Day series for National Poetry Month.


  1. I truly love that book.
    And Edward Hirsch.
    And that quote...

  2. I've put this book on reserve at the library--thanks for featuring it again, which prompted me to say, "I've got to check it out." (And buy it, if it's as good as it sounds so far.)
