[personal profile] oneiro [n. dream orig. Greek]:
weaver of words,
threader of melody,
intrepid psychonaut,
delirious dreamer,
in love with [personal profile] pseudosky.

What you are, you are my accident of birth; what I am, I am by myself. There are and will be a thousand princes; there is only one Beethoven.

To return to my lecturing days: I automatically gave low marks when a student used the dreadful phrase "sincere and simple" — "Flaubert writes with a style which is always simple and sincere" — under the impression that this was the greatest compliment payable to prose or poetry. When I struck the phrase out, which I did with such rage that it ripped the paper, the student complained that this was what teachers had always taught him: "Art is simple, art is sincere." Someday I must trace this vulgar absurdity to its source. A schoolmarm in Ohio? A progressive ass in New York? Because, of course, art at its greatest is fantastically deceitful and complex.
