To the Editor:
Hillel Halkin’s article, “What Is Cynthia Ozick About?” [January], was outstanding. He demonstrated, more clearly than anyone else has done, why Cynthia Ozick deserves a place in both the pantheon of great American novelists and the pantheon of great American essayists. Penetrating literary analysis of this sort has rarely been seen since the death of Lionel Trilling.
