Possession - A.S. Byatt

"‘You know, if you read the collected letters of any writer – if you read her biography – you will always get a sense that there’s something missing, something biographers don’t have access to, the real thing, the crucial thing, the thing that really mattered to the poet herself. There are always letters that were destroyed. The letters, usually."

 

Very true.
