Margaret Randall has authored dozens of Marxist/feminist books and maintained extensive correspondence with Latin American intellectuals. She is the only American poet forbidden by Senator McCarthy to return to the United States. I do not know if she is also a lesbian, she looks like one and partners with a woman painter, although she was married (to a man; in our days, one has to specify) and is mother of four children.
Anyway, the proposal to write the essay on her was successful and now we are engaged in ordering books and looking for bibliography. "We" because I am my daughter's research assistant. It is difficult, because her professors and teachers are of the highest quality, all them Ph.D.s in English Literature from Harvard and Oxford, talented Jewish women who married to Israelis and live here. They have absorbed politically correctness from the very source, and indoctrinate their students in spirit of the most extremist Berkeley feminists. The College also has an American Fullbrighter with a Hispanic name, he corrects "our" essays and I have to admit he is very professional and all his comments/criticisms are right. What is he doing teaching English literature in Israel? (The question does not imply any negative sentiments, I am happy to be corrected by him because he is an excellent editor).
But, objectively, he is a cultural missionary converting us to left wing American culture. (I had thought that feminism conquered Israel by imitation, but no, Americans are actively subverting Israeli culture. Meaning political culture, see how our poor President Katzav was defenestrated and jailed for trying to seduce his whore secretary.)
Some of the Fullbrighters are financed by the CIA, at least those in Argentina in my times, were. No doubt we are being actively influenced and subverted by crazy American left wing culture, but I think we - I mean my daughter and I - are in little danger of catching the lunacy. And it seems worth to run the risk of damaging our mental health in order to learn world class English literature.
