I am sure you have seen my query to the ADS list about "privilege."
Mr. Safire would appreciate your insights in particular. In addition, could
you comment on the term "presentism"? According to the _OED_, it has been
around since the 1970's. It means "seeing the past through the glass of the
present," and I believe, although I don't yet have an answer, that it is
used by new-historicist critics.
If you would like to reply, please do so by tomorrow morning. Mr.
Safire is on deadline. Thanks.
