About this Quote

This quote by Robert Penn Warren talks with the suggestion that poets are especially sensitive when it comes to cash. This might be due to the fact that poets frequently have a hard time to make a living from their craft, and so money provides insecurity and anxiety for them. It could likewise be since poets are typically viewed as creative, creative people that are not interested in material riches, therefore they really feel a sense of shame or sense of guilt when it concerns cash. Whatever the factor, it is clear that poets are particularly delicate when it pertains to money, as well as this is something that Robert Penn Warren has observed. This quote functions as a reminder that poets need to be sustained and valued for their work, and that their monetary demands ought to be taken into consideration.
