Brian Friel – 1929-2015

imageRest in peace, Brian Friel, master of the “Truth’s superb surprise”

Tell all the truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —

-Emily Dickinson
[epigraph to Molly Sweeney by Brian Friel]
