"Great literature"

"EVERY great literature has always been allegorical—allegorical of some view of the whole universe. The 'Iliad' is only great because all life is a battle, the 'Odyssey' because all life is a journey, the Book of Job because all life is a riddle."

~G.K. Chesterton: The Defendant.


Illustrations to the Book of Job:
"The Lord Answering Job out of the Whirlwind"
by William Blake.
