Quote #4

[…] whatever
returns from oblivion returns
to find a voice: (18-20)

If Shmoop had just returned from oblivion, our first order of business would be to find a large pizza with extra pepperoni. After that, it'd be good to find a voice so we could call up our friends and tell them what oblivion was like (and how good that pizza was). But seriously, folks, who would we be without our voices? And how will you use yours?
