Thread Name: New book - Legacies of Ewan MacColl
Subject: RE: New book - Legacies of Ewan MacColl
" it seems likely that MacColl the autodidact had simply listed every book that he had consumed".
an auto didact is someone who is self taught, which in itself is not insulting,although I agree, when I read that statement it did not appear objective to me, my first reaction was that it was harsh upon MacColl.
could you throw any light on this one.. what was the Critics reading list?.
