E.B. White's Fantastic Letter About Why He Wrote "Charlotte's Web"
The beautifully written letter reveals just how much of himself is in the book.
"The theme of 'Charlotte's Web' is that a pig shall be saved, and I have an idea that somewhere deep inside me there was a wish to that effect.”
"Only in rare instances has anybody ever come to grief because of a spider."
"I haven't told why I wrote the book, but I haven't told you why I sneeze, either. A book is a sneeze."
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
