A quote page credited Forester with this quote. Could anyone please tell me where the quote came from? Thanks in advance
"In the creative state a man is taken out of himself. He lets down as it were a bucket into his subconscious, and draws up something which is normally beyond his reach. He mixes this thing with his normal experiences and out of the mixture he makes a work of art.

This quote should be from the essay 'The Raison D'etre of Criticism in the Arts' which is included in 'Two Cheers for Democracy.' I hope this information is helpful for you. Three Cheers for Forster! Good luck to you!

The quote seems to be from Anonymity, an Enquiry. This appeared first as a Hogarth Press booklet (Hogarth Essays series, 1925) and was later also published, I believe, in Two Cheers for Democracy (1951) of which there have later been numberous Penguin reissues.
Best wishes, Laura
