APRIL FOOL’S IMITATION-TYPE TEST TO WHILE AWAY A LITTLE TIME



I'm celebrating April Fool's day with Jonathan Williams's classic quiz! Below is question number 11:

I have said on many occasions that a course in reading and writing could perhaps be better taught as manners or decorum. I.e., that craft, in large part, consists of being receptive, democratic, ecological and in not thinking that the world rises and sets in our own private anal orifice. Do you agree? More particularly, do you see that poetry can sometimes be the making of refined art objects, not simply forms of therapy, self-expression and gunning for people?

Take the full test here!
