From Marguerite Yourcenar, who wrote the classic Memoirs of Hadrian – 

“Since man, fragment of the universe, is governed by the same laws that preside over the heavens, it is by no means absurd to search there for the themes of our lives, for those frigid sympathies that participate in our achievements as well as our blunderings.”

I often read poetry before I begin writing or editing. This was true of my first novel, Baby Jesus Pawn Shop (published November 2008), and is continuing as I write the second novel.
