18.0% "For a guy who wants his readers, be who they may, to open-mindedly enjoy poetry, Orr sure does take pains to show poetry's (and his own) political partisanship...which, in this reasonably literary reader's mind, is a ridiculous prerequisite for enjoying poetry. I hope this isn't a book that explains how propaganda can be art too."
