Quotes About Critics Art

"[Henry James] essays closing lines can either be read neutrally or as a more purposeful wish that this mystery [of Shakespeares authorship] will one day be resolved by the criticism of the future: The figured tapestry, the long arras that hides him, is always there ... May it not then be but a question, for the fullness of time, of the finer weapon, the sharper point, the stronger arm, the more extended lunge? Is Shakespeare hinting here that one day critics will hit upon another, more suitable candidate, identify the individual in whom the man and artist converge and are one? If so, his choice of metaphor - recalling Hamlets lunge at the arras in the closet scene - is fortunate. Could James have forgotten that the sharp point of Hamlets weapon finds the wrong man?" - Author: James Shapiro

Quotes About American Pioneers

"Could it be that Americans are a restless people, a mobile people, never satisfied with where they are as a matter of selection? The pioneers, the immigrants who peopled the continent, were the restless ones in Europe. The steady rooted ones stayed home and are still there.

And the fact is that we have." - Author: John Steinbeck
