Author QuotedDenise Levertov
Title QuotedWith Eyes in the Backs of Their Heads
Date (Year/Month/Day)1961/09/19
QuotationOne new poet I am very happy about is Denise Levertov. New Directions has done a book of hers, With Eyes in the Backs of Their Heads. I think it is very fine, very spiritual in a broad, Jungian sort of way. She is not Catholic as far as I know, or may be. I think a poem of hers was in Jubilee. Ned O'Gorman is very fine too, I like him.
