link + link + link + picture of a poet

For your Wednesday morning contemplation:

Is Dorothy Parker still relevant? Has her poetry held up? The New Criterion thinks so.

Here’s a picture of W.H. Auden. Trust me, he was handsome when he was young.

Martin Amis talks about the friend who was a source for many of his male anti-heroes.  An interview that was published in The Telegraph (London) last summer.

There’s a fresh-to-death new edition of H.W. Fowler’s piquant (and still useful)  Dictionary of Modern English Usage.  Toronto’s Globe and Mail reviews this classic. Has anybody else noticed a lot of journalism about grammar guides lately?
