Interesting piece by Johann Hari in today's Independent in which he nominates Clive James as the first poet laureate of a supposed new age of poetic accessibility.

That's a very felicitous quotation at the end! I don't remember anyone on MV accrediting it to Emerson. (I think T.S. Eliot was mentioned)
 
And its a great idea to have Clive James as Poet Laureate!

You are quite right, Jan. in thinking that Hari has misattributed the quotation. It actually  comes from section 5 of The Dry Salvages,  which is No 3  of T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets .

I believe Clive doesn't drink much these days; can I have the sherry?
 
Seriously, it's a great idea. As Johann Hari points out, it's Clive's enthusiasm that gets us in. Any article of his praising a poet makes me want to track down some of the poet's output and read it. I like Clive's poems too mind you.
