In "The Art of the Sonnet" by Stephen Burt, David Mikics, WCW is said to have "singled out the sonnet as a 'fascistic form.'" Maybe he is best known by the paraphrase of his original comment(?)
Really enjoying your posts. A possible lead to the sonnet/fascist question - The following appeared in Google Reader: "These charges have continued from Pound and W.C.Williams to Amiri Baraka, Adrienne Rich, and Diane Wakoski (who once equated sonnets with fascist politics!) and are doubtless reiterated in brand-new manifestos." Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of this book on hand to see much of the previous text but it is p. 298 of An Exaltation of Forms: Contemporary Poets Celebrate the Diversity of Their Art, edited by Annie Ridley Crane Finch, Kathrine Lorne Varnes.
