"In criticising the work of a creative artist whom he admires, a man may devote himself to reverent interpretation. Indeed, that is always the highest kind of criticism--to translate, through one's own temperament and intellect, the fine work of another man, to cast new lights on its beauties, to reveal things hidden in it, to illustrate and to extend its meanings."
