    Trying to thread the needle between the Scylla of Yeats or Tennyson (or Kipling) and the Charybdis of Poe and ending up sucked into Poe because, let’s face it, it’s a lot easier to do an adolescent feeling things strongly (no, you don’t understand… even stronger than that… NO! YOU DON’T *UNDERSTAND*) than it is to tell stories of the just-so (okay, maybe punch them up a little).

    We live in a world where this “jingle man” (what a cut!) does navel-gazing more eloquently and (seemingly) effortlessly than our best omphalopsychians. Scylla made Charybdis up her game.Report
