"My task which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel--it is, above all, to make you see." -- Joseph Conrad (1897)
Inspector Lohmann joins the Happy Tutor being cited in a scholarly paper. That's quite remarkable. Both make inspired use of pseudonymity, as well.
Harry, pat yourself on the back as you reminded me to read these posts... where was Wealth Bondage cited?
I can tell you by whom, but I'm unable to find the exact post. The Culture Cat references our friend, the Happy Tutor, in her thesis. I't hard for me to find words today, but I find more significance in this trend -- hopefully a trend -- than in the web demographics and and anti-establishment media studies. Maybe it's because they're my friends :-)
Hey, actually, you're thinking of Arete! She's the one who cited the Tutor in her thesis. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't totally *heart* the Tutor, but I wrote my thesis back in spring/summer 2001, before I'd ever even heard of him.
Thanks Clancy. I looked on your blog in frustration, finding only a mention of whips and giggles, but I could have sworn. . . Oh well.
Hi Clancy--your site was one of the few that talked about the idea of dialogic writing (I found it and commented on a post about it way-back-when) ... thanks for the lead...
