Reflections - The Definitive Performances 1964���1969

Famous quotes containing the words reflections, definitive and/or performances:

    Customs and convictions change; respectable people are the last to know, or to admit, the change, and the ones most offended by fresh reflections of the facts in the mirror of art.
    John Updike (b. 1932)

    I always used to suffer a great deal if I let myself get too close to reality since the definitive world of the everyday with its hard edges and harsh light did not have enough resonance to echo the demands I made upon experience. It was as if I never experienced experience as experience. Living never lived up to the expectations I had of it—the Bovary syndrome.
    Angela Carter (1942–1992)

    At one of the later performances you asked why they called it a “miracle,”
    Since nothing ever happened. That, of course, was the miracle
    But you wanted to know why so much action took on so much life
    And still managed to remain itself, aloof, smiling and courteous.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
