We have a collection of 3 Poetry quotes from Harry Mathews

"Well, the great thing for me about poetry is that in good poems the dislocation of words, that is to say, the distance between what they say they're saying and what they are actually saying is at its greatest." (ID 35555)

"Well, I had this little notion - I started writing when I was eleven, writing poetry. I was passionately addicted to it; it was my great refuge through adolescence." (ID 35556)

"My next project is to get back to that. Actually, to learn how to write poetry. I'm not kidding." (ID 35557)
