What is the line between being very clever and being genius?
I know Einstein, Darwin etc are classed as genius
Q1- Would you also class Shakespeare,Beethoven and J.R.R Tolkein as genius as well in a creative way?
Q2- Would you class someone with a vast knowledge in astrology,world history,mythology,human anatomy.
and a creative mind inspired by music and art , they can listen to a piece of music or see a painting and instantly think of a novel and its characters, plot, set period and ending.
At the age of 17? Just very clever or potential genius?
