Earning trust …

… Anecdotal Evidence: `The White Light of Idleness'.

I think I have mentioned before that I once introduced Geoffrey Hill at a reading he gave at the the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan. He told the audience at one point not to bother themselves too much with his allusions, that he sometimes forgot them himself. He thought it best to just read the poems on their own terms, and that the allusions would take care of themselves sooner or later.
