    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I have to say that Grieg's relationship to Kees' property is problematic. Michael Grieg told me that Kees' parents said he could keep all the paintings, and things like that. I have no way of verifying that claim. Grieg did end up owning all the paintings, pictures, which he then began selling, ... It took me years to convince him to let me see what he had. I think I was probably the first person to be given access to it.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Over the past half century, as American poetry's specialist audience has steadily expanded, its general readership has declined. Even if great poetry continues to be written, it has retreated from the center of literary life. Though supported by a loyal coterie, poetry has lost the confidence that it speaks to and for the general culture.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Jazz is one of the great, truly native American art forms. Along with the movies, it's probably the art that the rest of the world associates most deeply with America.”
