Blind Men Measure the Elephant

In the end, the "critique of language" is just a social game. There is no word that makes sense outside of language. When he wanted to sit outside his tongue, he would not find a chair. Make no mistake about my irony. My irony is as naive as my pathos. I tried to express myself incredibly with irony, without a trace of frivolity - on the contrary, I wrote it with the most serious face, without a smile - while only my cheerful, unmoved spirit laughed in me. An artist is the creator of something. To reveal art and conceal an artist is the goal of a work of art. A critic is one who can interpret his impression of something in a different form and by new means. The highest as well as the lowest form of criticism is a kind of autobiography. Those who discover a different meaning in something are corrupt. That is a shortcoming. Those who discover its meaning in something are people with culture. There is hope for them.
