"[For instance, the more exposure Lehman's wife gets as a nationally-respected poet--and appearing in Best American Poetry is perhaps the biggest step presently acknowledged in that direction--the better the job she can acquire, and the more income she can make; the more exposure Lehman's own book editor gets--the editor, I'd note, of a small but growing press in New York City--the more his own book with that press, or future books with that press, is likely to sell; the more Lehman can promote other poets who publish with that same small-but-growing press, the more exposure the press itself gets, and thus the more exposure Lehman's book and Lehman himself get; the more Lehman makes clear to the poetry community that being a student of his means almost certain inclusion in the BAP, the more attractive he is as a professor of poetry students, and the more prospective poetry students want to study with him, and thus the more salary he can command as a professor; and so on]."
