The Brief Prosaics of Walter Benjamin


Work on good prose has three steps: a musical stage when it is composed, an architectonic one when it is built, and a textile one when it is woven. (Walter Benjamin, "One-Way Street," in Reflections; trans. Edmund Jephcott)

So..are you composing, building, or weaving at the moment?
