you without retouch

On Pascal Eliot:

“It is a commonplace that some forms of illness are extremely favourable, not only to religious illumination, but to artistic and literary composition. A piece of writing meditated, apparently without progress, for months or years, may suddenly take shape and word; and in this state long passages may be produced which require little or no retouch… he to whom this happens assuredly has the sensation of being a vehicle rather than a maker.”

T.S. Eliot
