“Picture,” by Lillian Ross Lillian Ross’s “Picture,” originally published in 1952 and now happily reissued by the New York Review Books Classics imprint, is an immensely enjoyable work about the immensely unenjoyable process of making a Hollywood movie. In the book’s five chapters—first published, in this magazine, as a series of long-form articles—Ross writes, with great subtlety and humor, about the production of John Huston’s “The Red Badge of Courage,” based on Stephen Crane’s Civil War novel. Ross reported the story for a year and a half, largely from Los Angeles and its environs, and was given envy-inducing access, the kind a writer would rarely get today, to its central players.

One of literature’s most striking descriptions of the creative process can be found in Vladimir Nabokov’s novel “Pale Fire.” An academic, Professor Kinbote, recalls standing on a terrace with the poet John Shade. Shade, he says, is soaking in the view: “perceiving and transforming the world, taking it in and taking it apart, re-combining its elements in the very process of storing them up so as to produce at some unspecified date an organic miracle, a fusion of image and music, a line of verse.” The moment reminds Kinbote of one from his childhood, when he watched “a conjurer . . . quietly consuming a vanilla ice.” Nabokov disliked the idea that others would search his writing for glimpses of his personal life. In a 1944 biography of Nikolai Gogol, he stated his disdain for “the morbid inclination we have to derive satisfaction from the fact (generally false and always irrelevant) that a work of art is … [Read more...] about Who Owns a Story?
