    1. RS POETICA,

      I'm curious why/how Soto is invoking this tradition, perhaps most famously authored by Archibald MacLeish in the pages of this same magazine, especially given that it usually focused overtly on the aesthetics of poetry as an art form and here is far more narratively driven.

      Interestingly, African American female poet Rita Dove has also rewritten the "Ars Poetica" tradition in similar narrative style in Poetry Magazine. The narrative take seems to reject MacLeish's call for the poem to be "palpable and mute."

    1. But like the original authors, JSTOR had to negotiate its licensing agreements from a position of weakness. There is a wonderful history of JSTOR written by Roger C. Schonfeld. In it he notes that the charter publishers signed up by JSTOR (in particular the University of Chicago Press) demanded that they be compensated if there was a loss to their (minimal) sales of rights to older materials, and they demanded compensation even before JSTOR covered its own expenses.
    2. JSTOR, which did not pursue criminal charges against Swartz and "regretted being drawn into" the U.S. attorney's case against him, came into existence in 1995 with good intentions. It sought a solution to the rapidly expanding problem of paying for and storing an ever-growing list of academic journals. The situation for libraries was becoming untenable.
    1. The criminal investigation and today’s indictment of Mr. Swartz has been directed by the United States Attorney’s Office. It was the government’s decision whether to prosecute, not JSTOR’s. As noted previously, our interest was in securing the content. Once this was achieved, we had no interest in this becoming an ongoing legal matter.

      How was this initiated?
