It's odd and pretty much proves out my theory that certain teachers assume everyone knows what they know. Chatman with his assumption everyone in the world has read Lagos Egri and Aristotle, McKee thinking everyone knows what he means when he references the "well-made" play.
I'm a big Basho fan and have at least a semi-understanding of what Powell is talking about, but if I'd been clueless the book would have been a great big, "huh?" It's not exactly reader-friendly. There are a lot of references to obscure articles, Chuang Tzu, Taoism and bits and pieces of just about everything from Van Gogh to Alexander the Great. It's a magpie book, full of hidden gems and odd insights. Absolutely brilliant, and totally non-commercial...in a cult favorite kind of way. It's not really a writing book, but rather something to carry on your journey.
