Questionnaire seeking the negative opinions, or “anathemas of five noted Americans,” on 13 various artistic categories and activities: play, book, painter, food, film, musical work, celebrity, activity, virtue, place, mental attitude, type of humor and “Antidote in a category of my own.” Participating are Theodore Roethke, Mailer, Marianne Moore, Orson Bean and Jules Feiffer.
