Lamenting the Avalanche of Secondary Literature

By any standard it is now impossible to keep up with the sheer quantity of publications, increased exponentially by two and a half decades of word-processing technology.

The "publish or perish" mentality, long since dreaded especially by junior scholars, has become an all-encompassing output culture that is at once wholly unrealistic in its expectations and encouraging of staggering superficiality in its Diktat to leave no thought unpublished.

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
