“Writing a book I have found to be like building a house. A man forms a plan, and collects materials. He thinks he has enough to raise a large and stately edifice; but after he has arranged, compacted and polished, his work turns out to be a very small performance. The authour however like the builder, knows how much labour his work has cost him; and therefore *estimates* it at a higher rate than other people think it deserves,”

—James Boswell (1740–1795)

“A poet’s work is to name the unnameable, to *point* at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.”

—Salman Rushdie (b. 1947)
