Context is all

As any archivist know context is all. Today´s Quotation is from Matthew Pearl: The Poe Shadow.

Duponte went on:  “The cuttings are not enough, monsieur. There is as much to reveal from what surrounds information as the information itself. Skip the columns that make the heart of the populace palpitate with excitement – read everything besides this, and much shall be learned. You have sacrificed a great portion of the intelligence in each article by divorcing it from its sheet.”
