How do you think this impinges on his work as a writer? Before this, he was
much admired (even if not read a lot lately). Do you think there will be
some revisionist readings and hasty droppings of his stuff from collections
now? Or will his work continue to be esteemed? Lord Byron did some pretty
weird stuff in his time, and so have other writers (Poe, etc), but their
work is still admired. Lewis Carroll seems to have had a slightly odd
relationship with children too.

ODWJM... I seem to recall DWJ saying at leasttwo writers she knew didn;t
like children At All.
