Cyril Connolly

Cyril Connolly

English intellectual, literary critic and writer.
Flaubert spoke true: to succeed a great artist must have both character and fanaticism and few in this country are willing to pay the price. Our writers have either no personality and therefore no style or a false personality and therefore a bad style; they mistake prejudice for energy and accept the sensation of material well-being as a system of thought.More Cyril Connolly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
