Writing Advice from Deleuze

Writing Advice from Deleuze

“My ideal, when I write about an author, would be to write nothing that could fill him with sadness, or if he is dead, that would make him weep in his grave: think about the author on whom you are writing. Think about him so hard that he can no longer be an object, and likewise so that you cannot identify with him. Avoid the double shame of the scholar and the familiar. Return to an author a little of that joy, that energy, that amorous and political life that he knew how to give and invent.”  - Gilles Deleuze
