From the Paper:

"The interplay of individuals, each helping his or her fellow to achieve his dreams - with Divine Aid - that is so clearly depicted in A Prayer for Owen Meany is disturbingly absent from Rothko's work. Instead, it is the entrepreneur's America, a place in which the science that provided the know-how for invention and wealth has taken over our lives and reduced them to mere blocks of drab color. It is the industrial wasteland of the brooding Industrial Age philosopher, the deep thinker who has witnessed the carnage of two world wars, and America's battle to preserve its ideals in a world of violent ideologies and rampant technology."
