When we are seeking out unknown texts, we tend to look for those that have “earned” (a strange social sort of earning, but that is another post, isn’t it) the four and five star reviews. The one-star review books we tend to avoid.
So what about our well-loved texts and the people who encounter them, find them somewhat lacking, and award them … only a single (or partial) star?
Those poor, poor deluded Misunderstanders of What We Love.
But the reviews are intriguing. Thank you, Biblioklept, for collecting and sharing one-star reviews of our beloved Moby-Dick.
