Aaron Kramer (1921-1997)

Great literature is always a great warning. If we see some danger, we must prophylactically write about it. Even if it's very painful.
I am absolutely convinced that all poets, all real poets, are rebels. I don't demand that all poets write political poetry, political declarations. Any kind of honesty is rebellion.

-- Yevgeny Yevtushenko

Maybe there is, after all,
something behind it --
something that summons me
out of the deepening blue
and choses me . . .

-- Aaron Kramer
