Sol Yurick

  1. I saw Yurick’s obituary in the Guardian as well, and I appreciate your elaboration on his legacy. His resistance to efforts to impose a dominant cultural paradigm were certainly admirable and politically essential. For some reason, I was always instinctively resistant to the “Great Books” approach to literature and culture as promoted by people like Mortimer Adler and Robert Bloom. Anyway, back in the high school in the 1970s, they gave us the freedom to pick the literature courses we wanted. I consciously refused to subject myself to reading Hawthorne in an Early American Literature class, opting for Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller in another course instead.
