“Hold back the edges of your gowns, Ladies, we are going through hell” William Carlos Williams

5 Aug

I just love that sentence! It makes me think of long skirts and sucking mud, and wellies. And what a great introduction to ‘Howl’ for Carl Solomon by Allen Ginsberg which you can buy as one of those lovely orange Penguin books – Howl, Kaddish and Other Poems. I think that if I were to win the lottery, my first stop would be a bookshop to buy one of each orange Penguins so that I could line them up on a shelf and admire them.

So I am starting a blog, or have done now once this is published. And this will be the place where I can record my favourite lines that I come across during the remainder of my English degree. I am aiming for a couple of posts per week but we will see how I fare when I get closer to exams later in the semester.
William Carlos Williams seemed like a good place to start, particularly as this line has a lovely cautionary tone to it as well as signalling a beginning. I hope that maybe this quote makes you think about reading a little more of his brilliance.
Good night!
