Eh. I wanted to like that article, having some sympathy for much of his argument or position or whatever, but then he went and praised Billy Fucking Collins. If ever there was a McPoet, it's BFC.As for "What’s certain is that writers such as Catullus and Martial are perused with more visceral enjoyment than virtually all contemporary poets", Mr Price simply needs to follow his own advice and read more. AE Stallings, Brad Leithauser, Greg Williamson, Daniel Anderson, Andrew Hudgins... I can hear Richard Wilbur calling out "Ah'm no' daid yet" in his best Monty Python voice...
The fact that so many poets loathe Billy Collins underscores the point that poetry has sunk into squalid elitism.
