Art – History

November 5, 2014

So long as we neglect this subjective side of history, which may more simply be called the inside history, there will always be a certain limitation on that science which can be better transcended by art. So long as the historian cannot do that, fiction will be truer than fact. There will be more reality in a novel; yes, even in a historical novel.
– G.K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man
