Book cover for Stoner
“And literature is written to be entertaining?” Wooley suggests again, “Absolutely. My God, to read without joy is stupid.”
Vladimir Nabokov
“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

Anne Carson
“He came after Homer and before Gertrude Stein, a difficult interval for a poet.”
Anne Carson, Autobiography of Red

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“The Brothers Karamazov is a joyful book. Readers who know what it is “about” may find this an intolerably whimsical statement. It does have moments of joy, but they are only moments; the rest is greed, lust, squalor, unredeemed suffering, and a sometimes terrifying darkness. But the book is joyful in another sense: in its energy and curiosity, in its formal inventiveness, in the mastery of its writing. And therefore, finally, in its vision.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
