Quotes of Cri

“ The title refers to the wife's calling for a lost puppy, yet it is clear that hers is in truth a cri de cur for the unassuageable pain of growing old before she has even grown up. ”

- William A. Henry III

“ When I heard the word "stream" uttered with such a revolting primness, what I think of is urine and not the contemporary novel. And besides, it isn't new, it is far from the dernier cri.

- James Joyce
