I neglected to add that the essay my wife focuses on a somewhat lesser known Hopper work, "The Barber Shop."
Nighthawks is a favorite Hopper of mine. BTW, my wife, an artist, wrote an interesting essay on Hopper some time ago. Here's a link: http://leftbankartblog.blogspot.com/2010/12/architecture-of-color-modern-life.html?spref=tw
Great explanation of feckless. Semi-relatedly, another word w/the suffix -less is ruthless. I've always found this word odd. I'd imagined that the 'ruth' is related to 'wrath', but if so why would the agent associated w/that word be lacking in 'wrath,' rather than have lots of it. Perhaps then, the 'ruth' and 'wrath' aren't related, after all.
