I have a hard time understanding this sentence,
How could it be otherwise with so strange and masterful an artist?
This sentence confuses me in two points,
- What's the meaning of otherwise here, I tried to substitute otherwise with alternative and similar words. But it didn't work so well.
- The sentence structure is somehow reverted here and I had a hard time to revert it back. If I can revert it, I think I can have a better chance understanding the meaning of otherwise here.
