Now there's a man with absolutely no sense of humour - old George.
Do like some of his stuff, but, by God, he takes himself seriously.

I remember an argument on Radio Four years ago between Steiner and Terry Eagleton. I like them both; for different reasons.

Steiner's 'Babel' was an old fave; as was Eagleton's 'Ideology of the Aesthetic'. The latter ispretty tough stuff, though; and - as an undergrad as was - I probably understood 20% of it! Steiner, on the other hand, was at least easy to read!
