Meandering Into Marxism

July 26, 1987

I have a very conventional authors' complaint to register about James W. Carey's review of my "Politics of Letters" (The Book Review, June 28). He says that the book is, "centrally," "an attack on the notion of a literary canon." In fact, two of 20 essays in the book are about that subject, and neither is an attack on the idea of a canon.

It looks to me as if the reviewer mainly wanted to tell us some thoughts about Marxism.
