Real Toads and Imaginary Gardens


by Greene Maxine — 1965

The author is concerned with one of our age's strangest paradoxes: a widespread and desperate concern with "meaninglessness" at the same time that exact knowledge exceeds even the dreams of 25 years ago. It is this problem that invests the humanities with significance in a culture whose major motif is science. How the literary experience can help us to cope with man's inevitable "unanswerable questions" is the subject of this article.
