Abstract
Are the Philadelphia Constitution and the Bill of Rights works of art? If so, how would critics describe these works in program notes? Contrast is the order of the day: the features of each one, played against the other. Goethe, Cervantes, Beethoven , Wagner and the divine Wolfgang are invoked, along with Pope, Richardson, and the Immortal Bard.
