The writer, like a swimmer caught by an undertow, is borne in an unexpected direction. He is carried to a subject which has awaited him--a subject sometimes no part of his conscious plan.

To write is to be captured--captured by some experience to which one may have given hardly a thought.More Elizabeth Bowen quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
