I admire Tennessee Williams and am impressed by how he described the state of affairs late in his career. 

 

When I began to write, I liked the length and the weight of the sentences, the way a word looked or sounded or felt to me in particular placement. Then words went above and within the pictures I’d clipped. I had demoted my earlier god, who was now, with me, in service to the word.

And, we have the same middle name: Lanier.
