Famous quotes containing the words editing and/or category:

    In this century the writer has carried on a conversation with madness. We might almost say of the twentieth-century writer that he aspires to madness. Some have made it, of course, and they hold special places in our regard. To a writer, madness is a final distillation of self, a final editing down. It’s the drowning out of false voices.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)

    I see no reason for calling my work poetry except that there is no other category in which to put it.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)
