the implication of form

by uzwi

Lawrence Durrell, Justine: “I would set my own book free to dream… What follows would be a drama freed from the burden of form.” [p66, Faber edn. My ellipsis.]

Important here would be the strength of the form from which the book had been freed ? The input offered by the form would persist like the remains of a vanished civilisation, suddenly offering structure & then denying it, as you moved across the book’s landscape ?
