The most recent quote attributed to Elizabeth Bishop came from an article called Was the Art of S-Town Worth the Pain?: “Aren't you violating a trust?

I keep remembering [Gerard Manley] Hopkins' marvelous letter to [Robert] Bridges about the idea of a 'gentleman' being the highest thing ever conceived–higher than a 'Christian' even, certainly than a poet. It is not being 'gentle' to use personal, tragic, anguished letters that way–it's cruel.”.
