Previous Section   110. THE PIRATE-GENIUS   Next Section

The Pirate-Genius.  The pirate-genius in art, who even knows how to deceive subtle minds, arises when someone unscrupulously and from youth upwards regards all good things, that are not protected by law, as the property of a particular person, as his legitimate spoil.  Now all the good things of past ages and masters lie free around us, hedged about and protected by the reverential awe of the few who know them.  To these few our robber-genius, by the force of his impudence, bids defiance and accumulates for himself a wealth that once more calls forth homage and awe.
