"Singing with our fate we cry, cry for death, but good win out in glory in the end."
Aeschylus, Agamemnon

I'm currently studying English Lit, History and Creative Writing at university in England, and witing for the day I can write something of real worth... of which I despair as the days go by! However, I give you my feeble attempts, and maybe, someday I will get there... so any critcism would be greatly appreciated- as long as it is constructive, of course!

The most important thing I have learnt about good writing? it comes not from a spontaneous overflow of emotion, but from careful thought. Even the Romantics, famous for their spontaneious poetry, drafted their work. As a matter of fact, Wordworth's 'I wandered lonely as a cloud' was based on a diary entry by his siter, Dorothy Wordsworth.

Could I revive within me
Her symphony and song,
To such a deep delight 'twould win me,

That with music loud and long,
I would build that dome in air,
That sunny dome ! those caves of ice !
And all who heard should see them there,
And all should cry, Beware ! Beware !
His flashing eyes, his floating hair !
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread,
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.

'Kubla Khan', Samuel Taylor Colerigde

“In the room the women come and go

Talking of Michelangelo.”

T.S. Eliot, 'The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock'
