Quotation of the Week

Every week, I’ll put up a quotation related to writing or creation and tell you a little bit about the person who said it.  I’ll try to vary the speakers as much as possible.

"We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand." C. Day-Lewis

Cecil Day-Lewis (aka Nicholas Blake when he wrote mysteries) was an Irish poet.  He wrote 22 novels under his pen name and published more than nine poetry collections.  His children include an actor, Daniel Day-Lewis, and a television chef, Tamasin Day-Lewis.  Another of his children, Sean Day-Lewis, wrote his autobiography, C. Day-Lewis: An English Literary Life.
