"I suppose festival managers think that in order to stir up in a stunned populace a faint flickering of enthusiasm for poetry one needs to take its knickers down and make it bare its teeth. This kind of thing might constitute a reason for the apparently widespread occurrence of nervous depression. Matthew Arnold, in his essay on Heinrich Heine, wrote: 'Philistia has come to be thought of by us the true Land of Promise and it is anything but that: the born lover of ideas, the born hater of commonplaces, must feel in this country, that the sky over his head is of brass and iron.'" John Hartley Williams • The Bow Wow Shop
