You’ve got to sell your heart

18th century gothic novelist, Mathew Lewis, would also like to add something about authorship, “An Author, whether good or bad, or between both, is an Animal whom every body is privileged to attack; For although All are not able to write books, all conceive themselves able to judge them…In short to enter the lists of literature is willfully to expose yourself to the arrows of neglect, ridicule, envy, and disapointment”(The Monk p 198-199)
