Wallace Stevens. T.S. Eliot. Dana Gioia. I think I see a lineage!
From the NYT, of course (via Silliman, source of the best linkspam around):
I’ve always thought of myself as having two careers, one as a poet and the other as making a living. I figured that since Wallace Stevens and T. S. Eliot managed to combine business careers and literature, I could do the same.
