Famous quotes by maxine kumin:

    Until the Women’s Movement, it was commonplace to be told by an editor that he’d like to publish more of my poems, but he’d already published one by a woman that month ... this attitude was the rule rather than the exception, until the mid-sixties. Highest compliment was to be told, ‘You write like a man.’
    Maxine Kumin (b. 1925)

    Women are not supposed to have uteruses, especially in poems.

    Poetry
    makes nothing happen.
    It survives
    in the valley of its saying.
    Maxine Kumin (b. 1925)

    In the county there are thirty-seven churches
    and no butcher shop. This could be taken
    as a matter of all form and no content.
