All the more evidence of the breakdown of literary culture.
You appear to be cynical about publishers as I am about the academic essay.
There was a time when the connection for which you seek was quite apparent.
No less a personage as a major publishing exectutive at Faber and Faber
than T.S. Eliot himself was instrumental in the discernment and promotion
of many gifted writers, the husband of my thesis superviser, one Wilfred
Watson included. The publication by Faber of Watson's poetry
FRIDAY'S CHILD won him Canada's highest literary award, a G.G. aka a
Governor General's award, in, I believe, 1957.
On the other hand one might recall the publisher of TWL, or
Herbert Reid ((First name?) who was so mortally wounded by the satire of
Wyndham Lewis that he set out on a publisher's vendetta to prevent the
of Lewis' work, by promoting a no name by the moniker of D.B. Wyndham Lewis.
