From On Further Reflection: 60 Years of Writing, by Jonathan Miller
"In fact, the suggestion that plays are best left unperformed is comparable to the belief that novels can be successfully dramatized. In both cases, there is a fundamental misunderstanding about the structure and purpose of the genre. A play that has been kept unperformed has been aborted, whereas a novel that has undergone dramitization has been irreversibly mutilated."
