This Essay talks briefly about different aspects that makes up the art of writing. The author talks a lot about what art is and how it help shape the universe, our lives, and if it ceased to exist. He walks us through his though process and what writing means to him. He then breaks it down into some different parts of writing and compares it to life and its experiences.
I like the way he describes writing and how he relates it nature and life. He walks the reader through his train of thoughts when he’s writing and the feeling he gets from it. When I read what he describes writing is to him it almost seemed beautiful, the way he described his path to finding himself. ”I am a man telling the story of his life, a process which appears more and more inexhaustible as I go on. Like the world-evolution, it is endless. It is turning inside out, a voyaging through X dimensions, with the result that somewhere along the way one discovers that what one has to tell is not nearly as telling itself… It is this about art which is ‘therapeutic’: significance, purposelessness, infinitude.” His use of additive style that pushes the anticipation of what he is actually getting at, the discovery of telling, makes it more powerful and more interesting to read. I also like the way he explains language and words, how words are nothing with out language. Words are separate entities and have no meaning except to give and illusion of language. I liked how this essay was split up into sections and separated by a little paragraph to help us understand what the author was speaking of.
