Essays, mainly, generally about cultural ideas, with some left wing politics.
Explanation of the illustration:Yes, it's William Hogarth's The Harlot's Progress, final plate, but it's used innocently. I am not implying in any way that Janet Jackson is or bears any relationship to Moll Hackabout. The use of the illustration was, instead, to make a point about buried impropriety. Ignore the subject of the print (the dead prostitute) and look instead at everything else. You can hardly make out all that is happening, and that is the point.
