A servant

“The writer is not a leader. He or she is not, as some 19th century poets may have believed, always the best seer. The writer, when he is most authentic, is a servant who, seeing what others perhaps have missed, gently and persuasively informs them of a meaning by making them feel its presence in the theater of fiction.”
Charles Johnson
