Example text

But Yeats finishes the stanza on a specific and pointed thematic note, one that Art and Artifice in the Novel 15 is cautionary and even polemical. Lost in the world of sense, all ignore the “monuments of unaging intellect,” the great works of art that transcend time, decay, and death. Art becomes the one endeavor that mitigates the physical processes that bring all to ruin, yet art is the very thing that the world in its frenzy of the physical tends to ignore.

Here he creates what Foucault calls a “site of a fleeting articulation” (1977, 143), where the competing discourses of moral responsibility in the language of Sheriff Bell and of determinism in the language of Chigurh contradict, and yet within that contradiction is the very real place in which we all must reside.
