The Principles of Aesthetics - Dewitt H. Parker

This quote was added by malevolarky
There is an almost universal feeling, expressed in many common phrases, that prose literature is not one of the fine arts... The vague expressiveness and charm of the medium, the musical aspect, is largely lacking. Not wholly lacking, of course, as a multitude of beautiful passages testify; yet, in general, it remains true that, in prose, the medium tends to be transparent, sacrificing itself in order that nothing may stand between what it reveals to thought and the imagination.
