The Poets

The Poets
Oil on Canvas, 1919
Georgios Roilos 

         “Dorothea's faith supplied all that Mr. Casaubon's words seemed to leave unsaid: what believer sees a disturbing omission or infelicity? The text, whether of prophet or of poet, expands for whatever we can put into it, and even his bad grammar is sublime.”

--George Elliot (Mary Anne Evans), Middlemarch
