Rosemary Tonks On The Search For An Idiom

Ben Wilkinson has dug up a great quote from poet, Rosemary Tonks, from 1963. One to print off and hang on the wall. A quick snatch (but worth reading the whole thing):

“My foremost preoccupation at the moment is the search for an idiom which is individual, contemporary and musical. And one that has sufficient authority to bear the full weight of whatever passion I would wish to lay upon it.”
