and….

“…I will never be able to translate into fictional terms all that I feel. All that I know. It simply eludes me, it’s too intangible, too painfully subtle to be expressed in dramatic terms. There are some thoughts, then, that can only be private. One can brood upon them, mull over them, only in a journal. (And then only in a journal open to no one else.)…The realm of the un-written, the un-imagined, the never-conceived. Think of the para-Hamlet, the para-Ulysses, the great flood of emotion that did not find itself into Virginia Woolf’s novels….
[…]don’t know. I don’t know.

– Joyce Carol Oates, from a journal entry
