Quoting: Birkegaard on Literature

‘Literature has acquired a much too romantic glow these days. Reading has become a kind of distinguished pastime for intellectuals. But it really is nothing more than a means of distributing information, or even a form of entertainment, but first and foremost the transmission of knowledge, attitudes and opinions.’

Birkegaard, Mikkel. The Library of Shadows. London: Black Swan, 2009. 978-0-552-77502-1.
