Thornton Wilder re: Theophilus North


"One of the themes that subtends Theophilus North is that old question -- what does a man do with despair (his rage, his frustration)! What does every different kind of person 'store up' to evade, surmount, transmute, incorporate those aspects of life which are beyond our power to alter. It would seem to be a depressing subject, but it's not."
