Mediocre Magic

Allegorical works have this advantage that a single word suffices to illuminate connections which the multitude cannot grasp. Such works are available to everyone, but their significance addresses itself to the elite. Above and beyond the masses, sender and receiver understand each other. The inexplicable success of certain works derives from this quality of allegory which constitutes not a mere fashion, but a form of esoteric communications.
