Ruth Whitman on: "Diving into the Wreck"

I believe that "Diving into the Wreck" is one of the great poems of our time. It is a poem of disaster, with a willingness to look into it deeply and steadily, to learn whatever dreadful information it contains, to accept it, to be part of it, not as victim, but as survivor.

FromĀ Harvard MagazineĀ (1975)
