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.”
