“Communication in literature is not the simple appeal on the part of the writer of meanings which would be part of an a priori of the mind; rather, communication arouses these meanings in the mind through enticement and a kind of oblique action. The writer’s thought does not control his language from without; the writer is himself a kind of new idiom, constructing itself. My own words take me by surprise and teach me what I think.”

Merleau-Ponty (whom I have never read in my entire life, I swear)
