  • I am a few years older than Hicok, but there is no denying he’s been at this decades longer than either of us. From the beginning, I read Hicok’s essay differently: “Whatever the cost for me, I’m happy that the myths and traditions of gender and racial superiority are being turned on their heads by poets.”

    Years ago I read an essay by a famous novelist in The New Yorker. That one whined exactly in the way you describe. (I was later gratified to learn that Ursula K. Le Guin disliked him too.)
