Kunst kommt von Können (untranslatable: Art comes from ableness)


Eugene's critique of Peter's problem (elsewhere in this board)
*does* have a point. I take the liberty to formulate it, eh,
more politely:

If you see a problem and react "I could have done this too!",
does that diminish your estimation of selfsame problem?

Example: Reciprocal change in the #2. This is quite a tough
theme thingie. I looked at a load of problems with the theme and
noted there was a formal way to do it: You just need four
potential flights and to swap around their protection state.
After I understood that, it took me one minute to construct one:
www.schach-udo.de/albrecht/albrecht2/?pid=65101

On the other hand, other renderings of this theme are so
organic (read: the author was bloody lucky that everything
worked out right) that I never could have done likewise.

So again, do you prefer problems you couldn't have done yourself?

To which the reaction should be 'then why didn't you?'

Because the muse had PMS? :-)
(In case of Peter's SCHWALBE problem - because I only
very rarely do letter themes on my own)
