Clive James: 'The poems I remember are the milestones marking the journey of my life'
 

Anyone can be destructive, but the capacity to build something will go on being the great human surprise’ … Clive James. Photograph: Karen Robinson/The Observer
 
Quote:
.....The poet, in my view, is the kind of time-waster who thinks he is doing something cru­cial with the time he wastes: steering it towards eternity perhaps, or getting an Early Mark.

'He returned to what he really was': Clive James's daughter on his poetic farewell
 
Quote:

Claerwen James
 
 “My mother was always there, providing good sense and stability...But my sense of what the world was, is, and can be – of what a person can accomplish, and in particular of what a person can teach themselves through the simple act of application – is so enormous because of my father, and I’m so grateful for it......When I discover something new, he’s still the person I want to talk to about it.”

Best poetry books of 2020
 

 
Quote:
..... in The Fire of Joy (Picador), Clive James restated his belief that noise is the thing when it comes to poems, and the “fire of joy” it produces in those hearing and declaiming it. From Thomas Wyatt to Carol Ann Duffy, this valedictory volume features 80 poems he learned and loved, each accompanied by an essay to persuade us of their brilliance. Not that he could ever hide his. “I chose the right profession – poetry – and followed it to the end.”
