A Quote by Sol Luckman on fiction, robot, corporate world, education, excess, mfa, publishing, publishing house, bottom line, plot, language, awakening, reader, beginners luke, writing, and purpose

If we’re to avoid becoming fiction robots in a corporate world, we must stop adding to our educational excesses, eschew the assembly line of MFAs and bottom-line publishing houses, commit ourselves to a way of writing that engages in a valiant struggle to push the limits of plot and language so as to awaken, not anaesthetize, the reader.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on book, psychology, beauty, and reader

A book is a human fact; a great book like Seraphita gathers together numerous psychological elements. These elements become coherent through a sort of psychological beauty. It does the reader a service.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)

A responsibility of literature is to make people awake, present, alive. If the writer wanders, then the reader, too, will wander.
