Making sight

“My task which I am trying to achieve is,
by the power of the written word,
to make you hear,
to make you feel—
it is, before all, to make you see.
That—and no more, and it is everything.

If I succeed, you shall find there, according to your deserts, encouragement,
consolation,
fear,
charm,
all you demand—
and, perhaps, also that glimpse of truth
for which you have forgotten to ask.”
≈≈≈Joseph Conrad
