    but i would think carefully about whether or not its a game you want to play. its fundamentally dishonest. it's bluff no matter who adopts that tone and 5 years study is still just 5 years study. but as i say, you are a good critic and i'd far rather you wrote about jonsons 'riotous sobriquets' than the internal politics of countires youll never visit.

    so what i am getting at is, obviously, that style is also political. the ben jonson piece is good prose but its also catholic style. anti-democratic, incense, mystagogery. not that it is not clear. it is. but there is some smoke and mirrors there.

    i mean im quibbling, i i do think its a good piece of writing. i do approve. the most troubling thing is this
    Donít forget to visit the Kingís College London Festival of Food and Ideas, from 7th-22nd March.
    what on earth is that? are you getting paid? how strange.

    Don't be demented. It fitted in with the subject matter of the poetry, it seemed like a nice event to complement the piece and I mentioned it for the benefit of some of my friends in London who might like to know about it. I would go if I lived there. Not strange, very simple in fact.

    This was a self-evidently light-hearted, non-sinister, life-affirming piece of fluff. No mystical psycho-drama here, pal.

    Although if you want the version in which the intro (and context) wasn't inexplicably cut by my editor, this one's much better IMO: http://lewisgparker.wordpress.com/20...raw-clutchers/

    He hasn't mentioned it here, but Crackerjack has an interview with a Saudi film director in the New Statesman.
