Doris Lessing about storytelling & storytellers

In her Nobel Lecture, Doris Lessing talked about the storytellers and their action : “The storyteller is deep inside every one of us. The story-maker is always with us. Let us suppose our world is ravaged by war, by the horrors that we all of us easily imagine. Let us suppose floods wash through our cities, the seas rise. But the storyteller will be there, for it is our imaginations which shape us, keep us, create us – for good and for ill.”
