it's quite simple really: all he has to do is rip off cafe lota and americans will love it.

i think that's easily done--though some of the names may not be very recognizable outside of narrow circles.


But--as I didn't make clear--with substantial oeuvres? 200 who have written at least one or two poems worth reading, sure.

 

 

 

at a very conservative estimate, let's say there are 200 universities and colleges in the u.s who employ one poet each (the actual number would be much higher, as the big places may have 3-5). on average, they will have at least five books each (two needed for tenure, usually, and the established people will have published more than five over their careers). so that's an easy 1000 right there, just from university creative writing profs who very few people have heard of. and yes, almost all of this stuff is worth reading.

that butter chicken originated at moti mahal is not controversial. claiming a single origin for tandoori chicken seems a bit much.

no, and i'm no longer considering a job at a college an hour away (which is what led to this thread back in early 2007).
