Authors πŸ–‹οΈ

“Wanting to meet an author because you like his work is like wanting to meet a duck because you like pΓ’tΓ©.” (epigram tacked to the office bulletin board of Canadian writer Margaret Atwood, born on 18 November 1939)

β€œAll writers are double, for the simple reason that you can never actually meet the author of the book you have just read. Too much time has elapsed between composition and publication, and the person who wrote the book is now a different person.”

“Voler incontrare un autore perchΓ© ti piace il suo lavoro Γ¨ come voler incontrare un’anatra perchΓ© ti piace il patΓ©”. (epigramma affisso alla bacheca dell’ufficio della scrittrice canadese Margaret Atwood, nata il 18 November 1939)

β€œTutti gli scrittori sono doppi, per il semplice motivo che non puoi mai realmente incontrare l’autore del libro che hai appena letto. È passato troppo tempo tra la composizione e la pubblicazione e la persona che ha scritto il libro ora Γ¨ una persona diversa.”

  2. Yes, very true… Just as it is also true that bloggers write blogs, read blogs nowadays… and yet they are so far apart… and they never take the symbolic pen and do not make anything personal, only the their opinion. The Internet is an exhibition genre. Not a church devotion…

  4. If you don’t differentiate between author and narrator, we run the risk that the author will take criticism as a personal attack. The choice of quotes has a lot of value to make us understand an aspect of the writers. Amazing photo Luisa.

  5. Guarda, io musicalmente parlando sono un “fan” di alcuni cantanti.
    Ho avuto l’occasione di incontrarli ma volutamente ho fatto a meno.
    Occasione persa, senza dubbio.
    Ma:
    1 sono molto rispettoso delle loro vita privata
    2 non sono uno che cerca in tutti i modi di incontrare i “vip” per poi vantarsene
    3 c’Γ¨ sempre la possibilitΓ  di rimanere delusi, perchΓ© magari hanno fretta, o sono stanchi, o non hanno voglia di incontrare i fan
    Per cui, meglio così.
    Forse.

  6. Interesting food for thought. I’m not sure I’ve changed that much since writing any of my books. My husband tells me I haven’t changed what I am, I’m just “more so.” I guess I’ve found what suits me, and I’m settling into that for good. πŸ˜‰

  7. L’epigramma Γ¨ davvero fantastico, il secondo invec3 ma sai che non ci avevo mai pensato? PerΓ² che un autore cambi personalitΓ  non credo, caratterialmente anche se gli anni passano si rimane piuttosto fedeli a noi stessi e questo credo valga per ogni essere umano, magari col tempo che passa si possono cambiare delle opinioni ma non diventare un’altra persona almeno credo, tu puoi confermarmelo o smentirmelo visto che sei un’autrice πŸ₯€πŸ₯€πŸ₯€ Serena notte e sogni d’oro cara Luisa 😘

  8. I have never thought about the possibility to confront and paragon an author to a duck. But this was the irony of Margaret Atwood.
    At the same time I agree about the truth that who write is not the same.
