* Egalitarianism at What Expense?

Cultural Collapse?

". . . Our schools as much as our universities are given away to these absurdities: replacing Julius Caesar by The Color Purple is hardly a royal road to enlightenment.  A country where television, movies, computers and Stephen King have replaced reading is already in acute danger of cultural collapse."

The Best of the Best American Poetry
Harold Bloom 1996
