Punctuated

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 9:00 PM

The poet W. S. Merwin reportedly died  today. 

“Punctuation basically has to do with prose
and the printed word,” he said in the Paris Review
interview. “I came to feel that punctuation was like
nailing the words onto the page. Since I wanted
instead the movement and lightness of the spoken
word, one step toward that was to do away with
punctuation.”

— Margalit Fox in The New York Times
