Thanks, Mike! What is Donald Phelps saying about Seuss/Sendak? To give me an idea, Mike lines up relevant quotes out of the Phelps piece (scroll down). The picture grows more and more clear. Yet I have a long way to go.

Mike takes issue with Bill Randall over, I think, whether Phelps is laying into Seuss or merely expressing murmured regrets. Apparently, Phelps’s argument is “actually more complex, nuanced, and laden with caveats” than one might expect from Bill’s summary, and the reason lies in the Phelps article’s ambiguous use of the word “form.” Or so I surmise from Mike’s comments. Read the whole thing! 

Mike lays into Noah for the thoughts expressed in Noah’s post about the essay. Apparently they’re outrageous, I don’t know.
