Ammons on Andrew Sullivan's Blog

Of all poets, A. R. Ammons shows up on Andrew Sullivan's blog today: "Corson's Inlet," as illustration, I suppose, of the "conservatism of doubt" that Sullivan champions. I'll take Ammons on Sullivan over Bruce Andrews on O'Reilly any day of the week.

Check it out here.

Also, swing by the Chicago Review's on-line anthology of work from their sixty years of publication. I'm tickled to see how often Ronald Johnson shows up as a contributor. Now how do I get Sullivan to read Ron? Hmmmm...

And you're probably right to do so. For an entirely unrelated example of high-level theoretical fatuousness, see Joshua Clover's disdainful response (yesterday) to Ron S.'s rather reasoned meditations on having to vote for Bob Casey (earlier yesterday).
