Welcome!  On this site you'll learn about the work of Avi Gvili, author and educator.  The basis of his work is this revolutionary idea explained by Eli Siegel, American poet and philosopher: "The world, art and self explain each other; each is the aesthetic oneness of opposites."

 

The opposites are in every aspect of writing.  For example, as a writer thinks about a character different from himself--a detective, a superhero, an ancient warrior--he is organically pulling ideas from his own mind; that is, he is seeing how he is the same as the character.  And as an artist uses his imagination to create settings, characters, plot, tone, he or she needs to go after saying something true about the world in order for the story to be believable.
