On Reading – Inspiration Quote for April

FullSizeRender

“What was the highest ambition of literature, the most one could hope for from the experience of reading? One possible answer, it turned out, had to do with a different approach to reading, one based not on a model of linearity, forward progress and accumulation, but on the idea that a reader should be stopped short, turned around, even undone by the text on the page before her.”

– Dana Stevens, from Bookends in The New York Times Book Review
