Still, to my mind, one of the most lucid essays on the subject ever penned by anyone, anywhere. Not only an eminent literary critic but a luminously beautiful writer in his own right, if this all-too-short essay is anything to go by.

(Carl Clinton Van Doren: September 10, 1885 – July 18, 1950, was a U.S. literary critic and Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer).

Yes, there is nothing I disagree with in what he wrote.

I recognize so much in that essay.
