Submit a poem to a respectable journal under the name "campermon of Ratskep", and the hilarity will be great. Submit the same poem under the name "Sylvia Plath" and it will be instantly published and an American lecture tour will commence immediately.

Exactly. This is how the publishing business works. :?

And this specific issue about Sherman Alexi and The Best American Poetry is way old news.

You did not read even the title of the article.

It is about John Ashbery scandal which is smoke screened by the other one which you mentioned.

Unlike the Best American Poetry scandal which appeared all over the media this one is thoroughly ignored.

Who is this Ted Hashberryman? Did he derive this pen name from Ashbery?
