ADRIAN BRINKERHOFF

Autographs flatter the writer, certainly, often into a kind of conceit. But without reading, there would be no writing. So my drafts reflect an increasing equality, a give and take, between the action of writing and the expectation of reading. A dedication expectably calls its objects charming, gracious, valorous, and maybe some of that name-calling rubs off on the poet.
— Peter Halstead, NOTES ON AUTOGRAPH
