Gaston Bachelard and his views on creativity and literature

"A word is a bud attempting to become a twig. How can one not dream while writing? It is the pen which dreams. The blank page gives the right to dream." Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962)

In my opinion this quote displays how each of us has the ability to create something. It also deals with literature and how there is always a story to tell. He also creates the idea that the pen is doing the dreaming and the blank page gives us a way to express our dreams

Interesting, but what does this have to do with the assigned readings?
