"I was at the time a Yale English major (we read, appreciated,
and discussed the meaning of literature) sunk in the toxic quagmire
of the one and only course I ever took in the literature department
(where authorial intent was ignored and every 'text' was considered
solely on how comfortably it nestled within the shackles of Marxism)."
"For decades de Man had been an avatar not just of leftist politics
but also of the leftist war on truth, the never-ending campaign
to recast objective fact as subjective and open to question."
