Anyway, I was faced with serious obstacles which needed a great deal of shaking before they could be overcome and before the urge to write could be released. Louis Fiirnberg was wonderfully good at encouraging people, even when he didn’t have much to be encouraged by. I think of him when someone who is just beginning to write gives me a manuscript to read. These days, by the way, young people don’t seem to be writing prose-Hans Kaufmann: Let's talk about 'prose'.
