There are two separate creative processes

However valid "collaboration" may be as

it is all to often a throw away tool to avoid
the thoughtful process needed to discribe

Why? I think it might be valuable to read Richard Badenhousen's book, T. S.
ELIOT AND THE ART OF COLLABORATION (Cambridge, 2004) The opening sentence
defines his thesis: "This book identifies collaboration as a life-long
operating procedure in T. S. Eliot's theory and practice, and it also
illustrates the various ways he resisted that same assistance."
I have only looked at it and have it on my list to read this summer, but he
looks at the entire lifetime of work, not just TWL. Clearly it is not just
a toss-off comment.

"Collaborator is yet another of those almost cliché groups into
which one is tempted to put Pound just so one can delude
oneself into thinking the phenom. has been explained."
I agree totally.
