I get fabulous emails about this project, recommending sources, locations, books, other comments. I love this. Yesterday, this arrived, and it is so spot-on, that somehow it must get included in something I am writing, but in the meantime, I wanted to put it here. Andrea sent it because it “reminded him of my work” which honours me greatly. It is from Marguerite Yourcenar’s Notebooks and is about her writing of Memoirs of Hadrian.
