Well, sure, this is the "log tail."

It's actually a historic strength of British scholarship, given new value by modern communications - but some people, still captive to mid-20th-century concepts of mass culture, don't seem to get it.


I enjoy reading your blog (although I don't comment very often) precisely because of many of the "obscure" writers and books that you have read and written about. There are plenty of blogs out there for people who want to read and re-read Austen and Dickens and Hardy and James--and I'm not in any way denigrating them, but there's only one place to I can think of where I can read about, say, Truth without Fiction, and Religion without Disguise.
