Industry Reviews

"Amid much blather about the alrightnik Western Literary Canon, child porn, and sexopolitical correctness (mostly neoconservative, lesser on the left), here's an old Clasical tradition long censored and banished from academics, re-emerged into intlligent light: a heroic humorous homoerotic counterculture live from Sappho to Plato & Vergil, thru Medieval Latin, Arabic, Hebrew and provincial languages, up thru Renaissance to Michelangelo. It gives courage to post Whitmanic contemporaries who've come out of the Industrial Age closet." -Allen Ginsberg
