So over that art
Which you say adds to nature is an art
That nature makes. You see, sweet maid, we marry
A gentler scion to the wildest stock,
And make conceive a bark of baser kind
By bud but of nobler race. This is an art
Which does mend nature–change it rather; but
the art itself is nature.
The Winter’s Tale, 4.4.79
Art adventures, literary hangovers, rural politics and other songs worth sharing.
