About this Quote

In this quote, poet Paul Muldoon explains his method to writing poetry. He describes that he gets in each poem with a blank slate, with no preconceived notions of how it will end up. He takes each poem as it comes, writing them one by one, without any fixed location in mind. This permits him to fully immerse himself in the imaginative process and let the poem take its own shape and direction. By not restricting himself to a particular end goal, Muldoon has the ability to explore various concepts and themes, allowing the poem to naturally develop and come to its own conclusion. This technique highlights the significance of being open-minded and embracing the unknown in the creative procedure.
