Today I read this great conversation between David Winters and Anthony Brown –
– I want to say that I read for the style, but I don’t mean ’style’ in the ’superficial’ sense … In the work of the writers I most admire, a style is always also a stance. That is, for them, a way of arranging words on the page is also a way of reaching a view of the world…

Life is full of coincidences – I went to a talk at the White Cube gallery by Jay Winter on Anselm Kiefer last week and he used the Paul Klee image at the beginning of the ‘A Conversation About Literary History’ article as the starting point of his talk. It is a great conversation and thanks for the link. The journal looks worth following too!
Oh – great!
Thank you very much for the link. I am pleased that you enjoyed the conversation.
Enjoyed it a lot!
Arranging words as a view of the world, the soul writing. Thank you for yet another thoughtful post.
Its a fine way of putting it, isn’t it?
…and I love that Schiele piece! I haven’t seen that one before.
