«A brilliant piece of work illuminates itself when it forgets it is brilliant.
I think in respect to the great masters of literature, the student is to use them
as brutally as possible; to devour them. Because they are made for this;
to get one’s hands dirty and transform them into something else.»

and Manuele Fior, illustrator
