Boy, with all this deferring going on, it's a wonder we ever accomplish
anything. Do we ever accomplish anything? No, wait, that's a question for
another list.
 In an attempt not to clutterr this list, I will be very brief: I.A.
is the great, great, great-granddaddy of modern, academic literary
criticism; he, and a few others, started that now infamous, and now
largely discredited, School of New Criticism. And while he is certainly
easier to read than say, the Yale Critics, he's still no cakewalk either.
Thanks for the additional film anthology source. Perhaps another reason
why books such as those are not published in abundance anymore has to do
with the publishing industry itself these days. No flash means no cash!
