Sam Tanenhaus's Slate piece about literary critic Leslie Fiedler is interesting for a few reasons. It's a great quick overview of his thoughts and career, and it made me wish I'd read more of his criticism during school. It also reminded me of the great Sopranos episode where AJ wrote a report on Billy Budd, and Meadow brats that Billy Budd does have a gay subtext, to Carmela's disbelief.
