CR sent a link to a book review in a post entitled "a book review: on
bringing poetry closer". I've sent Carrol a text copy of the rather
critical review. It does look though that this book was attempting
the linkages (BTW, thank you Nancy for your own list).
I'm probably not going to get my own chance to look at the book for a
bit. It's a busy time of year, isn't it?
