First Study in Counterpoint
"Manipulation is control, bad influence and the conscious effort to distort and exploit. Manipulation is also the protective manoeuvre, the steer to safety and the dexterous engineer of success. Arguably the greatest literary manipulation exists in the composition of a piece itself. The choice of diction, the deployment of punctuation and the synthesis of image combine to construct the ultimate expression of creative control."
