Poems and problems

"PROBLEMS are the poetry of chess. They demand from the composer the same virtues that characterize all worthwhile art: originality, invention, harmony, conciseness, complexity, and splendid insincerity." (Vladimir Nabokov, novelist, born this day in 1899. He died in 1977 at 78.)
