Quote of the Day for August 4th

Serious literature does not exist to make life easy but to complicate it. 


Witold Gombrowicz

Polish novelist and playwright Witold Gombrowicz (born August 4, 1904) produced works that examined humanity from a psychological standpoint and were considered forerunners of the genre known as Theatre of the Absurd. His first novel, Ferdydurke, exposed the fundamental immaturity of people. Gombrowicz had trained as a lawyer at the University of Warsaw, and throughout his life he didn’t hesitate to challenge established opinions.
