      jealous cope. I wasn't aware folio society books were made of cheap materials and cheap to buy. You aren't suppose to buy every book in their store, just favorite novel or non-fiction book. Same thing for easton press.

      Yes, but they include Ginsberg and other names they shouldn't. Very obnoxious. Still, I have their Ashbery and Niebuhr volumes.

        Eventually someone will fail to adopt those authors and they won't get reprints, pretty much everyone living or recently deceased has been a terrible pick
        The US just doesn't have enough good literature and poetry to pull from and anything postwar is still up in the air.

            Was he given a numbered book? The paperbacks and hardcovers of a single book are softball releases for clout. It's leguinn getting a half assed poetry collection and frickelse because the rights are in limbo that makes everyone mad on two fronts. I'll say I'm mad at the incompleteness and question her inclusion over speculative fiction veganas of the 20s and 30s.

            More to help keep money coming in. LoA requiring unlimited printing rights limits their output for the past century since it severely limits the money that can be made off of those books by the family/estate. Paper backs tend to be things which don't quite meet their criteria but had a weird sideways effect on American lit/culture that is worth acknowledging and the unnumbered hardcovers tend to be authors they will put out when ever they can get the rights but are not going to get the rights to anytime in the near future.

            I agree entirely with your first reply and meant nothing bad and everything by what you responded with. It's a very complicated issue. On the second thing, it was my personal iteration of the problem. Everyone is mad on two fronts. The lack of complete editions and the lack of deciding who should get them. I think whatever will make you retract calling me a moron, feel free to tell me what it is.

            >The lack of complete editions and the lack of deciding who should get them
            They have attempted to stay out of the whole deciding thing and try and be more archival, criteria is primarily having had a measurable effect on literature outside their bubble. Combine that with their completely objective criteria and what they can print is fairly limited. Most of the authors who are still under copyright and have complete works published by LoA probably either granted LoA publishing rights in their will or some third party wrote the check to get the rights for LoA. Often times it is just a waiting game for them.

            Also, just remembered that the paperbacks are actually a deal with universities for printing works required for classes, it has slightly more lax criteria than the main series.
            >I think whatever will make you retract calling me a moron, feel free to tell me what it is.
            By not caring about anonymously being called an anonymous moron but if you cease caring about that you won't care about a retraction so I will not feel particularly inclined to offer a retraction, not that I feel particularly inclined now.

        Book series like LoA, and Everyman’s Library, and the garish Barnes & Noble Deluxe editions, are published for a reason, and include the authors they do for the same reason.
        With LoA, it seems ok large donations can sometimes cause editions to get printed.
        In general though, the authors or subjects are chosen because of “cultural significance”, wether the author was “good” or not.

          That is their primary metric and was picked to reduce the chances of it becoming the victim of agendas. Writing them a big enough check can get something published but it still has to be approved by the committee which is completely separated from finances.

      Agree to disagree. Consumers do not care or even know about Loeb. I once showed a Loeb to a lit major from a well-to-do liberal arts college and he had never even heard of them. Only classics scholars and bibliophiles probably know of their existence.

          Woops, my mistake.

          The US just doesn't have enough good literature and poetry to pull from and anything postwar is still up in the air.

          I hope so. While there may be pinnacles of our society may be rife with pedophiles, this has only recently become anything which could be called common knowledge, so to have Ginsburg, prominently included in the pseudo-canon of American literature is just unbelievably revolting. Besides, his work reads like the ruined intelligence of a coom-maxxxer even without his NAMBLA affiliations. I actually wrote LoA and roasted them about it once, not that they care.

            I was going to make an anti American post responding to trash. Whitman is the best thing in the picture. Even the Canadians and nonbinary cryptosexuals that infect the literacy conversation just rhyme with Whitman. I know what I am and they wish they were this. Whitman.

            Whitman has his merits, but while I'm impressed by his uniqueness of voice, that's about the only thing about him I find worthy.

            Whitman keeps growing on you like a flag speedo on the beach grows on you drinking a beer, regardless of who, I am you is he is they. We all are, if you're murrican at all.

            I don't dislike him, I just wasn't very impressed by most of his ideas, and outright disagreed with some. I was impressed by his style and voice, but it has been around nine years since I first read Leaves of Grass, I believe. And yes, I am American. I'm a Southern, conservative-Libertarian, Christian man. I used to really love American history, literature, and philosophy, but I know too much now and everywhere I look I see the taint of Freemasonry--though I don't have a reason to assert that with Whitman. I consider him more similar in thought and voice to William Blake, but Blake is not exactly Christian in a way which would prevent him having been a Mason. I admire the British tradition especially, but even there I've come across hints at Rosicrucian leanings. I'm more of a "single glass of red wine, flannel pajamas, wool robe, suede house slippers, and a quiet room with a fire" sort of guy. Anyway, enough of my rambling. I'll post a nice book, so this is at least partly on topic.

            Good to know you like Whitman like you like good food. Brits miss that on all fronts at the best of times. I don't give a rat frick that he's a pantheist pansexual, it's part of the appeal, it excludes members of things. You are Whitman like you are a person worthy of citizenship. Failure to identify is grounds for israel never having been a state.

      Eat my shit, you arrogant twat. Do you really think anyone here failed to consider LoA has reasons for choosing its authors? Who the frick do you think you're talking to? Culturally significant? Don't make me laugh. No one outside of the pedo-sympathizer circles of the academic Judaists and Freemasons ever gave one flying frick about Ginsberg. I have never once in my entire fricking life heard a single person who did not graduate from a liberal university's liberal arts college even utter than piece of shit's name. Now frick off, with your pedoscum apologetics. *spits on your existence*
