Famous quotes containing the word literary:

    In the course of a life devoted less to living than to reading, I have verified many times that literary intentions and theories are nothing more than stimuli and that the final work usually ignores or even contradicts them.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    First literature came to refer only to itself, the literary theory.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    There are in me, in literary terms, two distinct characters: one who is taken with roaring, with lyricism, with soaring aloft, with all the sonorities of phrase and summits of thought; and the other who digs and scratches for truth all he can, who is as interested in the little facts as the big ones, who would like to make you feel materially the things he reproduces.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)
