Breaking news. Literary exhortation. Entertainments. And occasionally the arcane.
What???! I don't understand: the CURRENT government is expected to ask the Poet Laureate for poems on topics which ostensibly could only be written as protest poetry? The number of things absurd and yes, poseur-ish about this sentence....why would anyone in his position suffer this delusion about the government, or expect to be asked to write on these topics? Or for that matter, be expected to write on any pre-assigned topics at all?
