"By lack of understanding they remained sane." -Orwell.................. Our door lies open to all lovers of language. May words enrich your lives and grant you the power to affect physical change upon the universe. This site is staunchly dedicated to the freedom of information, the power of language, the history of literature and the beauty of poetry in the hopes that some turning of the earth will result of our utopian discord.

Establishment Cronyism in the "Independent" Literary Scene

King Wenclas of Attacking the Demi-Puppets makes some keen insights on the literary industry and its interrelationship with education and government. I enjoy his blog very much, even though he tears David Berman a new one, a poet I hitherto liked the work of. King Wenclas also acts as Publicity Director for the controversial watchdog group Underground Literary Alliance.

Check out these posts for a scathing indictment of Harpers, David Berman of Open City Books, the NY upper-crust overclass writing cliques and the literary industry as a whole as he poses the question Who Owns Literature?: Ben Marcus and Establishment Cronyism and Ben Marcus and Test Tube Literature and the conclusion is here. Enjoy!
