One thing I've always admired about Patti Smith is her refusal to be characterized. Rocker, poet, artist, mother: She seems to inhabit each of these roles almost effortlessly, moving among them as if the only difference was in our heads. And why not? For Smith, they all come out of the same impulse, a kind of ecstatic self-engagement, in which the line separating life and creativity, the mundane and the mystical, is an illusion, a border we create to bound ourselves. "Oh, God, I fell for you," she sings at the end of her 1979 song "Dancing Barefoot," and since the first time I ever played that record, I've heard this as a prayer, a benediction, as if it were God she had fallen for. Such a sensibility - fluid, visionary, risky - marks the 11 pieces in "Woolgathering" (New Directions: 80 pp., $18.95)

I am shocked that a newspaper of the caliber of the Los Angeles Times would print such an immature, shoddy piece of writing as that turned out by Al Martinez (Aug. 15) regarding the Scribner-Levine campaign. I am not even necessarily a Scribner supporter, but I think this article may well affect fair-minded people in such a way as to bring about the opposite result from that which Martinez obviously wants enough to stoop to this strange piece. He attempts to make Scribner look like a nut and Levine a rational, wise, humorous, tolerant contestant.
