Elaine Showalter, With All Of Her Crap And Saint-Crepin

I never realized how johnny-one-note she was, with her gynocriticism and that special sauce to go with it,  until I stumbled on the Wiki article here. How did others, how did Wood and Bellos and Muldoon, ever get along with her? How do English departments work, nowadays?

And think of the damage Elaine Showalter has done to the teaching of English literature, to the allure and dash and charm with which the subject is instinct, and can so easily be conveyed to students, at Princeton as elsewhere, as they are taught, in this audio-visual age,  the what and the why and the how to read.
