"Wisely or unwisely, instead of capitalizing on my reported gifts as a scholar and critic, I have kept them ancillary to my creative writing. Eric Bentleyhas stated that in the American theatre, one finds whimsy rather than comedy.... For one who believes the greatest living dramatist to be Wole Soyinka and whose favorite playwrights are Marivaux, Brecht, Euripides, Corneille, andAnouilh, whimsy is not likely to be the strong suit. In music my favorites are Mozart, Donizetti, Offenbach, and Joplin, in painting, Fragonard, and in poetry, Gautier."
