    Gertrude Stein's style is so dependent on her subject matter; the little bit of her non-fiction that I've read I haven't liked (although I do like some of her lectures).

    Leaving aside #14 (I do love The Wasteland and I am intrigued in the ways that people keep rewriting and revising that poem...and DFW is one of the main culprits there)...

    Number #18...without Weimar Culture, would there ever have been a Hollywood.

    I've only read bits and pieces of the Peter Gay, but that period of intellectual history is just fascinating.

    •  Speaking of Hollywood, (0+ / 0-)

      Peter Gay sets aside the sober historian's voice, and rips Fritz Lang a new one for METROPOLIS.  He's got objections that people who aren't familiar with certain cultural currents in Weimar Germany probably would never notice.
