• Melissa: You left a wonderful comment on an article of mine about mixing politics with art, and I wondered if I may use lines from it for a revamped version of that piece for another site. Here is the comment: "Every writer sees the world in which we live from a particular worldview. I believe it's impossible to effectively remove our beliefs from our writing. It's not a new phenomenon. I recall Johnathan Swift's 'A Modest Proposal' and Dante's Inferno, poking fun at their culture and demanding response. If we writers are to open our readers' eyes to the world as it is, then it's our responsibility to mix politics and art." I'd most likely use this part of it: "Every writer sees the world in which we live from a particular worldview. I believe it's impossible to effectively remove our beliefs from our writing. If we are to open our readers' eyes to the world as it is, then it's our responsibility to mix politics and art." LOVE that and would love to use it. Let me know! Lorraine
