Via Majikthise, perhaps I need a corrective on this. I have no quarrel with the idea of T.S. Elliot being an anti-semite, which is pretty obvious to me and the historical record, though I reject the term anti-semite, which is overly broad, and philologically inaccurate. I don't even have a quarrel with the idea that intentionally "anti-semitic" poetry might be good poetry. I am a little tips right now, however, so I just want anyone who reads this to check the Guardian article I'm linking to, and see if I am justified in thinking that its writer is a stunning illiterate. It's the most repetitiously bizarre, begging-the-question argument I have ever read. But, again, maybe I'm just pulling a Hitchens.
