“… the beautiful object
that stood in
for something else.”

— Holland Cotter quoting an art historian
in The New York Times  on May 13

From a post of April 27, 2020 —

“The yarns of seamen have a direct simplicity,
the whole meaning of which lies within the shell
of a cracked nut. But Marlow was not typical
(if his propensity to spin yarns be excepted),
and to him the meaning of an episode was not inside
like a kernel but outside….”

— Joseph Conrad in Heart of Darkness
