Nobel Prize In Literature Awarded To U.S. Poet Louise Glück | NPR News |  ideastream

(1914 -- during my father's first year)


Long ago, I was wounded. I lived
to revenge myself
against my father, not
for what he was—
for what I was: from the beginning of time,
in childhood, I thought
that pain meant
I was not loved.
It meant I loved.

-- Louise Glück
