Many Red Devils
Red devils are our own inner demons we each must confront. They are separate and different for every individual, yet they are all with in us and we must deal with them of our own accord.

Perhaps this was a telling of when one is beginning to write on a subject, but the words that flow out are reflective of a state of mind the writer was unaware of and was suprised by the change of attitude as he was writing. The mind can become freed as an idea grows while it is being examined and expressed; an idea can also be crushed during examination and expression. The devils could be an idea he wanted to disagree with at the start.
