Literature = Music = Literature = Music

"Listening to the words, listening to the songs, listening to the inherent vibrations in every syllable, I come to conceive the literary world as a musical creation where every effort to mesmerize with text, every attempt to excel in prose or verse, is nothing other than a venture into musical composition. And if I were to sing a vida, or if I were to write a sonnet, I would be doing one and the same. And if I were to write a novel, or if I were to compose a symphony, my writing hand and my musical mind would be in unison. I open my mind to the world of sounds, to the world of words, to their communion. And I am happy." --The fat poet
