Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Only Literature graduates think literature defines a culture.

Almost nobody involved in brexit talks about Shakespeare, let alone any other writer.

However they o talk about the inherited national mythologies of Trafalgar, Brunel, Empire and the Industrial revolution, the Battle of Britain, winston churchill, D-Day; all fed into their psyches almost from mothers milk and daily by tabloids and the political knaves who parrot this drivel Two world wars and one world cup, it's coming home.

An aggressive militaristic history of free-booting trade and gunboat diplomacy interpreted as stand-alone triumph against all the odds.

That's what you're argung with, not poetry

keep to the Fen Causeway
