Quote

To parallel my previous post (Paul McCartney’s music video “My Valentine” featuring Natalie Portman)…

“My Dishonest Heart”

The visual is sorely undervalued in modern scholarship. Art history has attained only a fraction of the conceptual sophistication of literary criticism. Drunk with self-love, criticism has hugely overestimated the centrality of language to western culture. It has failed to see the electrifying sign language of images.
