Do the Bartman

If you were a fan of baseball in the late 1980s, or if you went to Yale (Joe, I'm looking metaphorically at you), or if you are a scholar of 16th-century English epic poetry, or if you are Pete Rose, you may be interested in a review of mine freshly posted at Bookforum.com, discussing a new biography of the late president of Yale/commissioner of baseball A. Bartlett Giamatti.

Um . . . in what way is that look metaphorical? I mean, I went Yale. I think I know what a metaphor is.

You "went Yale"? How peculiar.

The look was metaphorical since I cannot physically see you. "Looking" becomes a stand-in for the idea of "recalling your days at New Haven," and thus can be accounted as a metaphor.

Or so they taught us at DeVry.

I did go Yale. Sadly. More peculiar than you know.
