Dept. of Nobel Prizewinners

“With Lane H discussed the things that were on his mind, such as the news that Iseult had written him about W.B. Yeats being awarded the Nobel Prize.

‘I don’t know much about the fucker,’ Lane said, ‘but to me it sounds like a sell-out, letting them hang the ribbon with the bloody medal on it round his neck. If he wrote the sort of poetry that told the truth he’d be more likely to have the other kind of noose slipped over it.’”
