Steiner on Art

Whatever enriches the adult imagination, whatever complicates consciousness and thus corrodes the clichés of daily reflex, is a high moral act. Art is privileged, indeed obliged, to perform this act; it is the live current which splinters and regroups the frozen units of conventional feeling.

George Steiner, from “Eros and Idiom” in On Difficulty and Other Essays
