" The novel is sometimes called 'the bourgeois epic,' meaning that it takes as its subjects characters from classes in society that have generally been beneath the interest of literature, except for comedy. " " No one wants a great work of literature that is like a pill to be swallowed to obtain a certain effect. We want works of literature that leave us more uncertain after we've read them than before." " One of Wilde's most extravagant and meaningful epigrams is: 'I would number Jesus Christ among the poets.' " " Everything must be translated into art." Shaw is the only person to have been rewarded a Nobel Prize (1925) for his contribution to literature and an Oscar, for the film version of PYGMALION (1938)." " His early life, as a member of Britain's elite, did not indoctrinate Orwell: It made him an inveterate critic of Englishness."
