Further adventures in objectification

Also while in Chicago, Kathy, Martin, John, and I tried to figure out who the hottest male writer of all time is. I think it comes down to a tie between Sir Walter Raleigh and Nathaniel Hawthorne, what do you think? Dashing!

  2. Oscar Wilde is a bit floppy for my tastes.

  4. Now, can I white wear a t-shirt under one of those or would that be sending the wrong message?

  5. Now that I think of it, I tend to avoid literature written by good-looking people.

  6. Are you saying blogs aren't literature or I'm not good-looking? Either way, F you!

    P.S. Yes you can wear a white t-shirt under a ruff, just not a collared shirt.

  7. Definitely Auden--but not until his face was all cigarette-creased, like an uncrumpled paper wad.

  8. Chateaubriand, André Malraux as a young man, Camus, Paul Celan, Daniel Canty.

  11. Most blogs, yours included, fall into some sub-category of journalism. Even calling a blog that deals solely with literary topics "literature" is like calling a cookbook edible.

    P.S. Thanks for the fashion advice. How do you feel about athletic socks worn under a doublet?
