Will be required reading for those who want a significant perspective on how and why our contemporary culture got to be the way it is. -- Frederick Morgan Stylish, richly allusive, and immensely readable...an invaluable collection. -- John Gross One of the most candid and perceptive critics of American culture. -- Gertrude Himmelfarb Times Literary Supplement A model of investigative advocacy of argumentation, principles, and responsibility...a superb performance. -- Robert McDowell Hudson Review A scathing critic but one whose tirades are usually justified...his intellectual rigor is refreshing. -- Catherine Saint Louis The New York Times His position is conservative but not reactionary, humanistic but not populist, fresh but never trendy. John Simon A book you will relish and applaud. Roger Kimball's essays on recent poets and thinkers...are as wise as they are elegantly written. -- Martin Gardner
