night of studying.

" There is a myth perpetuated by universities and intellectual journals that to understand a work of art is truly to grasp its message, to engage with it. But we know from our experience in life how far apart understanding and engagement can be and how possible it is to love another person or to respond to a building without adequately understanding then, or to understand them without feeling. "

-James Ackerman (1985)
