Introductions often inadvertently try to tame or quantify that which follows. In her wonderful bookThe Writing Life, Annie Dillard has written one of the most alarmingly true things I've read about the position the writer finds herself or himself in, vis-à-vis the text: \"A work in progress quickly becomes feral. It reverts to a wild state overnight. It is barely domesticated, a mustang on which you one day fastened a halter, but which now you cannot catch. It is a lion you cage in your study. As the work grows, it gets harder to control; it is a lion growing in strength. You must visit it every day and reassert your mastery over it. If you skip a day, you are, quite rightly, afraid to open the door to its room. You enter its room with bravura, holding a chair at the thing and shouting 'Simba!' \" When I think about it, that passage entirely captures the push-pull dynamic that I think lies at the heart of writing: You've brought something so monstrous into being (wonderfully monstrous, one hopes; shaggy; unable to be contained; no high-strung purebred, your unique creature) that it takes on a lifeof its own, and the more captivated you are by it, and the more the work reflects that, the more the monster has succeeded in capturing you. We know this fromFrankenstein. There is always the danger that in speaking briefly about this monster, in introducing it, we predispose the audience to think this beast more tame than it really is. 153554b96e
