From Barrett Watten's section in Grand Piano 4: "I associate the act of writing with the sound of doves in the neighborhood, at about eleven o'clock in the morning under a high fog, or late at night. The mournful sound of the dove indicates that writing is a matter of long duration that it will take a long time before we get anywhere with it." p. 64-65.
