People often take an interest in more than one work by a single artist or author. In so doing, they discover that individual works of art created by a single artist (or group of collaborating artists) stand in various relations to other works produced by the same person (or persons). Some of these relations are intended by the artist, others are not, and this difference makes a difference to our appreciation of the artist’s achievement. With reference to examples including Karen Blixen, Virginia Woolf, Mishima Yukio, and Ingmar Bergman, Livingston outlines an actualist, genetic perspective on work/life-work relations, with an emphasis on the role of intentions and plans in the life of the temporally situated artist.
