Engler on Lindsay
Here's a paper on Lindsay by Balz Enger I found while doing research on my upcoming presentation at the Lindsay Home (April 28, 2:00 p.m.) I was looking for Lindsay's comments on his "Gospel of Beauty" as found in his self-published Letter on My Four Programmes for Committees in Correspondence. Engler's papers describes what I was looking for.
"The first programme, on the Gospel of Beauty, consists of poems 'threaded together with a discussion of Democracy and Art; it is intended for art schools and departments.'" Also,
"He insists that his audiences should learn his poems by heart beforehand, or at least be familiar with them."
