On poets and writers (W. Faulkner)

On poets and writers (W. Faulkner)

“I’m a failed poet. Maybe every novelist wants to write poetry first, finds he can’t and then tries the short story which is the most demanding form after poetry. And failing at that, only then does he take up novel writing.”

W. Faulkner

  1. Thanks for your comment. I totally agree.

    On this quotation, I find Poetry extremely “pure” in the sense that it is all nude feelings and emotions. However, I admire and respect short-story writers and novelists… Both genres, together with Poetry, have produced brilliant, ever-lasting works of art!
