    Hello!
    I haven't been in this forum from a long time. Actually, I studie for my exam i pass this week.
    I have a question: what do you think about versification? It seems to be a little hard or do you simply need to let you to dive in the atmosphere of the poem?

    A flip response would be, that category 1 is normal practice (and I would add, placing the work in a/the wider cultural context) - and that as the critic's ego/status increases, he starts to view it as progressively in the other three categories! Book cover gives the game away; 'LEAVIS on Milton'.

    The sense of the birth of a work, its caring, then 'casting out from the family nest' to live its own life, was common to Latin authors, on account of the pun, 'liber' for book and 'liber' for child. And who wrote 'Goe, littel booke...'?

    Messieurs Nehrdwell,

    Take heed, and beware of all covetousness; for a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.
    Luke 12: 15
