Quote of the Day (P.G. Wodehouse, on Literary Critics)

“The soppiness and overenthusiasm of modern literary criticism is due to the fact that critics are now clean shaven instead of wearing full-size whiskers.”—P.G. Wodehouse, in a 1935 letter to his agent, in P.G. Wodehouse: A Life in Letters, edited by Sophie Ratcliffe (2013)

The image that accompanies this post, of the great comic writer P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975), was taken around 1904.
