high brow, low brow
Posted October 1, 2008on:
High Brow: New book! Words in Air: The Complete Correspondence between Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. Bishop is one of my favorite poets, and her story is an interesting one. She preferred the ladies, but her good friend Robert Lowell (also a gifted poet) was in love with her.
Low Brow: Dear Author explains the Alpha Male in romance novels. Actually, it’s a pretty insightful critique of a recent tendency of romance authors to try to outdo each other by making their heroes alpha-ier. (?) The bigger, brawnier, and pushier the better. (See also, Rolf.)
