Quote of the Day | 0812

All those forms, artificial as they seem to us today, would have appeared as natural and as right to their practitioners as the standard novel does today. Artificial though that novel form is, with its simplifications and distortions, its artificial scenes, and its idea of experience as a crisis that has to be resolved before life resumes its even course. I am describing, very roughly, the feeling of artificiality which was with me at the very beginning, when I was trying to write and wondering what part of my experience could be made to fit the form-wondering, in fact, in the most insidious way, how I could adapt or falsify my experience to make it fit the grand form.

V.S. Naipaul, ‘On Being a Writer’
