From Byron in Love: A Short Daring Life, by Edna O'Brien
"Writers writing about other artists has always appealed to me -- Rilke on Rodin, addressing that mysterious meditation between life and art. Virginia Woolf's Common Reader, providing those quick, deft glimpses that give us the human quotidian and a whiff of the genius within; Hardy watering the ink or Dorothy Wordsworth trudging up a wet road with dear William, to seek out a waterfall."
