Mark Halliday (3)

As I think I noted somehwere here, I haven't actually read Halliday's review. I'm going to try to get a hold of it and read it before I say anything else. Because I found another excerpt where it seems he's actually criticizing the notion of "teams". Seems I reacted too quickly (as I do frequently). It's interesting that Jordan mentions Ashbery because I'm positively allergic to the continual use of Ashbery as a kind of limit.

I don't think it's totally clear in the context of the review where Halliday stands on this issue, but we had a subsequent conversation in which he said he finds the "teams" notion abominable and was being sarcastic when he made the statement you first quoted. Again, it's kind of hard to tell.
