‘Break, Blow, Burn’: Well Versed” by Clive James in The New York Times 2005-03-27

The proud motto of every suckerfish is: we swim with sharks.

If we want a book to do more than what it does, that’s a condemnation. If we want it to do more of what it does, that’s an endorsement.

Read this well written review. It fires a slightly slow day, and inspires me to get on with rereading those introductions to WW1 poets.
