Tête-à-tête

I suppose your Lukácsist tendencies are showing themselves there, which is fine by me (though a certain version of my old modernist self might prefer to have his Wyeth and "eat it," too [by which I mean, of course, have my Wyeth and crash my BMX on that snow-covered, the-center-cannot-hold road]).

Puts me in mind of some at-the-time-shocking-seeming advice Michael Fried gave to CK when he was in Berkeley lecturing on Caravaggio and they had lunch together: abandon Benjamin for Lukács. Given his commitments, it's still hard to fathom what he was trying to convey by such a remark (was he being selfless?).

(FYI: it's a rainy San Francisco day, and I'm listening to Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain)
