The final paragraph of the obit reads: Always a prolific critic, he
cultivated a reputation for incisive, often savage reviews. He once
reviewed a young poet's first collect three times--once in his own
name, one under a pseudonym, once anonymously--each time negatively."
This last point shows the raw vitriol lurking in Hamilton's
criticism. One reason I like Salinger is that he at least stood up
and smacked Hamilton will Hamilton was smacking him...they're linked
though...I'd be surprised if Hamilton didn't show up in Salinger's
obit. will
