The role of the writer is not simply to arrange Being according to his own lights; he must also serve as a medium to Being and remain open to its often unfathomable dictates. This is the only way the work can transcend its creator and radiate its meaning.
-Vaclav Havel, Disturbing the Peace, ch. 2 (1986; tr. 1990)
