Did You Know?
Many accepted authors simply do not exist for me. Bertolt Brecht
, William Faulkner
, Albert Camus
, many others, mean absolutely nothing to me. I must fight a suspicion of conspiracy against my brain when I blandly see accepted as 'great literature' by critics and fellow authors Lady Chatterley's copulations or the pretentious nonsense of Mr. Ezra Pound
, that total fake.
Mentioned in the song 'Don't Stand So Close To Me' by 'The Police'.
