Love & Literature by Andre Maurois

In literature, as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others.

 

Andre Maurois

Among Others by Jo Walton – III

I had said that Le Guin’s worlds were real because her people were so real, and he said yes, but the people were so real because they were the people the worlds would have produced. If you put Ged to grow up on Anarres or Shevek in Earthsea, they wouldn’t be the same people, the backgrounds made the people.
