What is the greatest love prose you’ve ever read? Who wrote it? Please quote a few lines?
The greatest gift is a portion of thyself. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Is your imagination of love, your ability to write about it – greater than your experience?
Both the imagination and the experience of love occur in my own head, but translating feelings into words can amplify the experience.
Have you ever fallen for a character? Who? How does he or she compare to the real love of your life?
Fallen for – no, not really. Maggie Tulliver from Mill on the Floss is an interesting character.
What are the words that you can’t imagine ever being associated with love?
Self, Gain, Own.
With a nod to Yeats – If “love comes in at the eye, how does it go out …. (please imagine the rest of this sentence)
It goes out with the ego.
Does love have its own language?
