Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Today I was reading The Uncollected Oscar Wilde edited by John Wyse Jackson.
The selection is from a lecture to art students delivered in June 1883.
“To begin with, such an expression as English art is a meaningless expression. One might just as well talk of English mathematics.”
If you would like a couple of bonus lines (the conclusion of this paragraph):
“Nor is there any such thing as a school of art even. There are merely artists, that is all.”
