    The critical method which denies literary modernity would appear—and even, in certain respects, would be—the most modern of critical movements.
    Paul Deman (1919–1983)

    Aesthetic emotion puts man in a state favorable to the reception of erotic emotion.... Art is the accomplice of love. Take love away and there is no longer art.
