Given the amount of time spent on "scholarship" in spite of CR's delightfully assiduous attempts to focus on poetry, and given how he is insidiously repaid for his efforts, I would have to say that the list has a heavy bent toward prose debate with a little fig leaf of scholarship thrown into the reprobate tea for good measure. I would welcome scholarly endeavours such as Jerome prods us to, but I fear the effects of publish or perish have long since worn the gloss off those apples -- ah the bitter apple and the bite in the iPhone. I fear I have succumbed to my old temptation. Stercum tauri cerebra confundit.
