Who is j. david bolter?

Famous quotes containing the words bolter and/or david:

    The reader uses his eyes as well as or instead of his ears and is in every way encouraged to take a more abstract view of the language he sees. The written or printed sentence lends itself to structural analysis as the spoken does not because the reader’s eye can play back and forth over the words, giving him time to divide the sentence into visually appreciated parts and to reflect on the grammatical function.
    —J. David Bolter (b. 1951)

    To say that God has given a man many and great talents frequently means that he has brought his heavens down within reach of his hands.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
