News at Eleven: Back in 1996, she [Sharon Olds] said something

to Salon that still gnaws my craw: "To me the difference between the paper world and the flesh world is so great that I don't think we could put ourselves in our poems even if we wanted to." A few years before that, she allowed only that her work was "apparently personal poetry" ("[B]ecause how do we really know? We don't.").

But we do, don't we?

from The Boston Globe: 'Stag's Leap' by Sharon Olds
