Personal Quote:

In an age when other fantastically speedy, widespread media are triumphing and running the risk of flattening all communication onto a single, homogeneous surface, the function of literature is communication between things that are different simply because they are different - not blunting but even sharpening the differences between them - following the true bent of the written language.
