A Writ Against Lit Crit

Steven Hayward at PowerLine,
"yesterday wandering through the fabulous bookstore at St. John’s Santa Fe (where they still teach the Great Books the old fashioned way), a book caught my eye in the used section: Political Shakespeare: New Essays in Cultural Materialism. Now, there is a lot to be learned about political life from Shakespeare’s plays, and there are several great books about Shakespeare and politics, the most notable being Allan Bloom and Harry Jaffa’s Shakespeare’s Politics, which remains in print. Political Shakespeare, published in 1985, is not still in print. It isn’t hard to figure out why."
