Argument Weak, Shout Here

“They [literary critics] had become an interest group battling for a share of influence, seeking to preserve their sense of self-importance by bullying an increasingly disgusted public into extending their mandate for another decade or two. The more they were called to account, the louder did they howl; the more they were asked to explain what they knew of art, the more did they inflate their language and disguise their lack of discipline.” [Bryan F. Griffin, Panic Among the Philistines (Chicago, Regnery Gateway, 1983), pp. 97.]
