A poet

My favorite section of the Economist is undoubtedly Books and Arts, but when I begin reading an issue, I usually turn straight to the Obituaries.

Often, these commemorate famous people, the outlines of whose lives are already familiar, but the best obits are of the undeservedly obscure.

Too bad so many of these are hidden behind the pay wall.
