Umberto Eco Quote
Stopgaps do belong to the internal economy of the form, since the Whole requires them, even if only in a subordinate position... The stopgap Luigi Paryson's 'zeppa' accepts its own banality, because without the speed that the banal allows up, it would slow up a passage that is crucial for the outcome of the work and its interpretation.
