One woman's chocolate

Just found this lengthy interview with Marilyn Hacker in Ploughshares.

What's with this analogy?

She says of her own precocity, “I wouldn’t recommend that anyone go to university at fifteen. It really is like giving a fifty-dollar bill to a child and turning her loose in a Godiva chocolate shop.”

How could that be a bad thing, is what I wonder!

The interview is a good read. Don't know how old it is though.

Spring '96, when she guest-edited the issue.
