Interesting words - Gore Vidal

Culture is in the hands of schoolteachers who enter literature in much the same way that Victorians went into the Church, and once safely inside the academy, increase their own kind, spawned by misreadings of Joyce... It seems not to matter to American culture whether any given book is good or bad, for who, after all, would know the difference?
