Lewis on why we write

by on 20/05/04 at 9:39 pm

First, I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it. . . . We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand. –C. Day Lewis, The Poetic Image
