Chess: Stuff people write!

One of the pictures at HiLoBrow website

Hi Everybody,

Here is an interesting thought on chess featured on HiLobrow website. We couldn't resist sharing it with you though you're unlikely to understand it in one go. Happy figuring it out! (As if chess puzzles were not enough to figure out!)

An entry on the website reads:

"Chess is a hilobrow pasttime. But insofar as it’s regarded — by middlebrows — as a “classy” highbrow or anti-lowbrow pasttime, the game becomes vulnerable to kitschification. It becomes klassy."
