Unfortunately, I cannot agree with you about the quality of Adam Kirsch's article.

How can critics can be believed when, obviously, ciritics is incapable to understand what is written ?

For example, Howard is not "against beauty", as writes Adam Kirsch's : his mind is only incompatible with beauty, what is a problem for a professor of aesthetic !
The second misinterpretation he makes is to think that Howard's career and life collapse, at the end of the novel, whereas he is coming back to life !!!

The following of his article looses quite credibility !

I'm afraid that Adam Kirsch would rather change of job for not have seen such évidences...

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
