N.G.'s Definition N.G

N.G.'s Definition N.G.

Once Eliot's definition has been ignored N.G. uses his own and leaves it unstated to common readers. How nice to be an egotist. His arguments are therefore unfounded and N.G. has either not read "Notes Towards a Definition of Culture," or he has read (red) it only to take quotes which, unexplained or out of context, appear to support his argument. Having ignored the full context of the Notes N.G. sneers: "Hence Eliot's view, no doubt, that Shakespeare. Milton and Shelley would be caviar to the general." But in the Notes Eliot propounds that culture no such things as lower classes, it draws sustenance from all.

This article may seem to smack of the cold war but Ls an Interesting reply to a similar article published in Salient two Issues ago. Many of the problems suggested by these two articles are Important in this and other contexts. Both articles are therefore worth reading.
