In re: Norman Hinton:

"Before reading Empson on any Renaissance writer one ought to get a copy

 >of Rosamond Tuve's _A Reading of George Herbert_, in which she totally
 >demolished Empson's foolish readings of the Metaphysical poet."

Rosemund Tuve tried to bully people with antiquarian information into
believing that poetic texts could only have one meaning-almost always
one a lot duller than the more inventive critics she liked to take on,
like Empson. Poetry will always refuse to be pinned down like that.
Empson, for all his ticks, understood that about poetry. Tuve did not.

Best,
Hugh Grady

Ouch! Empson foolish!

And yet who has heard of Rosamond Tuve?

Next you will be telling me that A.C. Bradley is dead and Austin was
wrong about Words.

Alack the falling of old masters.

Best,
Marcus
