Private: Latest Paris Review

The latest issue of The Paris Review is out. Among other things, it features an article on Dylan Thomas’ years in the Welsh town of Swansea and an interview with Paul Muldoon.

Also at The Paris Review this month: an excerpt from an archived Henry Miller interview is newly available online. In it, Miller explained his contention that in the U.S. artists will never be accepted unless they compromise themselves:

I feel that America is essentially against the artist, that the enemy of America is the artist, because he stands for individuality and creativeness, and that’s unAmerican somehow. I think that of all countries—we have to overlook the communist countries of course—America is the most mechanized, robotized of all.
