First, in accordance with current fashion, I must make my political statement: the mighty Brecht, no less, knew something all the little post-Brechtians appear to have forgotten or mislaid: modern literature has not changed the heart of even one politician - to my knowledge. Polit-Lit does have one important function, of course: to show the few readers interested that One's Heart Is In The Right Place. Like everyone else, I have attempted political poems. Unlike everyone else's, mine were complete disasters - bad poetry - and are happily banned or suppressed, by me. Now the exponents of Poetry, and even more so those of Polit-Lit have had and no doubt will have much more to say this Summer School. In all fairness, therefore, I think it's time Science had a hearing.
