ART WARS (continued)

Filed under: General — m759 @ 9:00 PM

On author Paul Fussell, who died today—

"Vincent B. Sherry, writing* in The Cambridge Companion
to the Literature of the First World War
, called Mr. Fussell’s
book 'the fork in the road for Great War criticism.'" 
Christopher Lehmann-Haupt in The New York Times

"When you come to a fork in the road…"

Alyssa Milano as a child, with fork

* Actually, the writing was by James Campbell. Sherry was the book's editor.
   See Campbell's "Interpreting the War," pp. 261-279 of the 2005 (first) printing.
   The fork is on page 267.

   Update of 9:26 PM— In the latest  version of Lehmann-Haupt's article, the fork
   has disappeared. But Campbell's writing is still misidentified as Sherry's.
