"The poem is not only a piece, like other pieces of art; it is a piece full of pieces. [August Wilhelm von] Schlegel says, ‘in poetry every whole can be a part and every part really a whole.’"

Heather McHugh, from “What We Make of Fragments,” in Broken English: Poetry and Partiality (Wesleyan University Press, 1993)
