Every writer must face, at one point or another, a difficult decision. William Faulkner's words openly unfold the tragedy of having to remove or kill gorgeously written passages and characters that don't take the flow of the story further. Because they exist merely as beautiful fragments displaying the author's skill or verbosity, these darlings must be taken out of the work in order to save it and let it breathe more freely.
Illustrated beautifully, this print captures the struggle writers go through in order to excise their darlings from their writing. Just like favourite old toys that have to be placed in boxes for storage, so these darlings need to be carefully picked up, hugged, but ultimately put away. This print is a wonderful reminder of Faulkner's advice and would make an ideal gift for a writer.
