Comment of the Week

Jack Ridl wants to know:

"Why Does William Logan Hate Me?"

I like when Ridl quotes this:

I remember asking the professor who led me to literature, what he was feeling when he retired. “Sad,” he replied. “Not because of retiring, but because of what has happened to what I care about. Literature is being replaced by a way of talking about literature that dismisses the value of the work and merely draws our attention to those showing off what they believe is intelligence.”

And the whole Jim Harrison dying a smartass quote at the end is priceless.

I love "Mingus at the Showplace," the poem by William Matthews that Ridl quotes. It perfectly nails the right attitude toward art.
