Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0470  Re: Parody

I thought it was quite thrilling for Professor Thompson to mock what she takes
to be the self-parodying effect of contemporary criticism by way of a parody of
rightwing mockery of contemporary criticism.  Right on!  Or did she mean it?

I have read both article in question and the article by Professor Orgel that is
being argued with.  The allusive quotation makes perfect sense to me; but maybe
that's because I've fallen into that annoying academic habit of reading
footnotes and following the chain of a scholarly debate.

I would be much more interested in hearing Professor Orgel's response to what
is in fact a serious if also somewhat stale objection to his position.
