E. B. White on style

by on 22/01/04 at 1:00 am

Every writer, by the way he uses language, reveals something of his spirit, his habits, his capacities, his bias. This is inevitable, as well as enjoyable. All writing is communication; creative writing is communication through revelation–it is the Self escaping into the open. No writer long remains incognito. –E.B. White
