"The anthology meets with two different kinds of reactions in living poets. They will write either toward the anthology or away from it. Anti-anthology poets often overreach themselves, inflicting self-protective distortions on their work - as parents in old Central Europe often deliberately maimed their sons to save them from compulsory military service. But the problem of remaining outside the anthology system should be to the poet no other than the problem of writing as it is best for him to write."

Laura Riding & Robert Graves, 1928
