Just think about it (13)

‘Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world and makes familiar objects as if they were not familiar’.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Isn’t this a useful criterion by which to assess artworks regardless of the particular artform being used?  Isn’t this what the arts are ‘about’?

  1. I agree. I think that wonderful quote also includes “lifting the veil” revealing intangible, sometimes ugly concepts and realities.
