It Says Here

‘I believe literature is the biggest form in which no one is wrong or right.’ (From an essay I just read.)

All depends on how you define 'biggest', and how you benchmark quantities in, say, architecture and literature. Take Ceaucescu's palace: was/is that wrong or right?

And how would that building compare to the accumulated heaps of commentary on Beckett, Shakespeare, Goethe, etc. Wrong or right? Not to mention the Irish translations of the annual reports of state agencies. Wrong or right?

Some very big forms indeed trundle along the pavements of East Yorkshire and from where I'm standing it's wrong, very wrong.
