What is the first question of a writer?

Do I need to read a lot of books - or even one?

   Listen to Plato's answer : Books can be your worst enemies (Margin: Yeats, The Scholars)


Who can be my advisor? What should I do first? I have many questions, but no answer! I feel alone. Should I believe in God? How do I escape conventions? How can I know the real quality?

   Listen to Rilke answering all of this in his Letter to a young poet (Margin: We don't know ourselves!)


Is poetry a form of immitation, and is this 'natural'?

  Read Aristotle's observations on The birth of poetry (Margin: John Keats, Art of communication)
