THE PERILS OF SELF EXPRESSION

Here's a bit of advice to poets everywhere. Tattoo this backwards on your foreheads so you can read it in the mirror every morning: if you get a bad review,
SHUT UP AND TAKE IT.

Male poets are especially prone to macho bluster in the wake of a bad notice. It's understandable. It must be excruciating to be an alpha male in the omega world of poetry and find yourself toppled from even that low pedestal. A painful case in point comes from a recent issue of the neo-conservative New Criterion. Pulitzer Prize winning American poet Franz Wright suffered a pasting at the hands of rotweiller critic William Logan and thought he'd put on his [cough] tough guy voice. But Logan has the last word. “I'll let you read it yourselves:” Sadness, sadness.

True, true. On the other hand, Plath committed suicide because of an absence of reviews. See Alvarez's Savage God!
