Doctor Zhivago

I just read this in an article on Doctor Zhivago and really had nowhere else to share it but thought it was rather nice...

"He isn't daring or especially brave, or notably virtuous or even spectacularly sinful. He's not scintillating. He is, however, a poet, and that means he is the most earnest, penetrating sort of realist."
John M. McInerny, "Lean's Zhivago: A Reappraisal." Literature / Film Quarterly 15(1) 1987: 44.
