André Gide’s take on great art and Baudelaire’s 2-line definition:

Là, tout n’est qu’ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté
[There, all is order and beauty,
Luxury, calm, and voluptuousness]

In which the inattentive reader sees only a cascade of words, I see the perfect definition of the work of art.
