Awareness of Action With a Mind in Motion | Psychology Today
And looking at drafts helped me learn how to do it—watching how Plath moves in her drafts, for example. MM Is it right to characterize this as a book about loneliness? CB It is definitely a book not about but of loneliness. And then all of these other voices: my beautiful students, and my poet-friends, and lovers, and my family, of course—and these other texts. But on the other hand, when you have no contingency of that kind [contingency of relationship], you actually find out what you think. You become aware of your consciousness as a mysterious other.
Marilynne Robinson is talking about Dickinson, but it also feels like a comment on the fact that we lose a lot by needing to be alone to work.
We give up so much. MM Especially thinking about people like Rilke, who neglect their families in the pursuit of art. CB Right. MM Did you literally start writing poetry the night he was born?

CB You might have a point. Sometimes when people have an idea, it gets too willed.
MM I felt like this collection was actually about so many things. There were more subjects in this book than in your other books, maybe because you allowed your mind to roam and did less paring down. But the threads all eventually braided in a way that made sense. CB Part of that might just be because it was written by a single mind.

And part of it might be the making and shaping of the book: cutting away and adding repetition and making small, as well as enormous, changes. The preoccupations are all sort of the same, in a way, but they were not top-down. Right now I really feel like I have no other thoughts. MM But these poems also confront all sorts of writerly problems by asking other writers for help. The book is profoundly intertextual; you just throw James Baldwin up next to John Locke and go from there.
How did you figure out you could do that? There was even an anxiety of, Am I leaning too much on other texts? For example, I just saw my teacher Ellen Bryant Voigt the other day, and she wanted me to read her a poem from the book. I feel like these writers save us from terrible solitude.
