Kunst – James Joyce “Ulysses”

„Was Kunst betrifft, so ist es nur eine Frage aus welchen Tiefen sie kommt. Alles andere ist Spekulation von Schülern für Schüler.“ (sinngemäß verkürzt zitiert)


S.185 „All these questions are purely academic, Russell oracled out of his shadow. I mean, whether Hamlet is Shakespeare or James I or Essex. Clergymen`s discussions of the historicity of Jesus. Art has to reveal to us ideas, formless spiritual essences. The supreme question about a work of art is out of how deep a life does it spring. The painting of Gustave Moreau is the painting of ideas. The deepest poetry of Shelley, the words of Hamlet bring our mind into contact with the eternal wisdom, Plato`s world of ideas. All the rest is the speculation of schoolboys for schoolboys.“
