thanks mario and erick,

i read it. i liked it. i have always thought that a literary work should stand by itself, and i've always thought it insulting to the work and the author when a critic psychoanalyzes the author to conveniently cat- egorize the work.

i wonder when he wrote this. it must have created quite a stink. i've heard exactly the opposite stated more than once: that an author's works separated from from the author becomes meaningless because of the loss of reference.

thanks again, miker
