Joseph conrad defined the artist as one who in a moment of courage, snatched from the remorseless rush of time, a passing phase of life; one who attempted the highest kind of justice to the visible universe by bringing to light the truth. The artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on wisdom; to that in us which is a gift and not an acquisition―and therefore more permanently enduring. This is an eloquent and stirring description but far from a true one. The artist cannot describe truth in its entirety. His vision is often distorted
