Tristan Tzara – On Writing

Vigour and thirst, emotion in response to the formation which is neither to be seen nor to be explained… a will to the word: a being on its feet, an image, a construction that is unique and fervent, of a deep colour, intensity, communion with life.’

Tristan Tzara  –  in  The Penguin Book of Twentieth Century Poetry: 1820-1950, Edited, Translated and with Introductions on the poets by William Rees
