On beauty

“It’s a very Greek idea, and a very profound one. Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it. And what could be more terrifying and beautiful, to souls like the Greeks or our own, than to lose control completely? To throw off the chains of being for an instant, to shatter the accident of our mortal selves?”

“Pero sólo la literatura puede proporcionar esa sensación de contacto con otra mente humana, con la integralidad de esa mente, con sus debilidades y sus grandezas, con sus limitaciones, sus miserias, sus obsesiones, sus creencias: con todo cuanto la emociona, interesa, excita o repugna.”
