John Barth

Every artist joins a conversation that's been going on for generations, even millennia, before he or she joins the scene.More John Barth quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I particularly scorn my fondness for paradox. I despise pessimism, narcissism, solipsism, truculence, word-play, and pusillanimity, my chiefer inclinations; loathe self-loathers ergo me; have no pity for self-pity and so am free of that sweet baseness. I doubt I am. Being me’s no joke.More John Barth quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
