Reading literature is fun but studying it for exams can sometimes be tough. That being said, I admit I need to prepare for my paper of Novel.
To the lighthouse by Virginia Woolf is an easy read but preparing its underlying themes is a lengthy process.
There’s this theme of “relation of art to life” that makes me think of writing process which I feel is similar to the “pangs of creation” which an artist feels for his painting. Woolf through her character of Liliy Briscoe has depicted this fact that in order to create, artist needs to connect with life.
And that makes me think that in writing too, a relaxed mind and a heart free of any ill-feelings can create wonders on paper.
