Article in the Commentary by Michael J. Lewis I couldn't help but find myself nodding in agreement to much of what was said in this article. I find it very difficult to openly voice my criticisms and even to write them down, but this article made sense to me (those who have spent the time mastering literature I admire whether I agree with it or not). I found it via a blouin artinfo site who was criticizing Lewis' article (I read only a few hours ago), but which now seems to be denying access to the article (so sorry if you cannot read it either).
The article then lead me to have a look at the Michael Lewis' Visual Images in a Verbal Culture. All of humankind has lived on storytelling since the beginning of time. I don't think that there is visual without verbal. It is when I see things like this I am again so so grateful to Graham Coomber who gave me the appreciation and love of art and colour and form and line and echo and pattern and repetition and on and on and on I could go.
