From "Poetics"

By Keston Sutherland.

Bourdieuvian preoccupation with the meaning of self-projection not simply as an activity of the ego but as the business of culture need not outrage anyone. Rainey, like Bourdieu, is of course highly conscious that explanations of this type lead unswervingly toward the total desacralization of art; and like Bourdieu he surely must take pleasure in imagining the liturgical protests of connoisseurs who believe that the art which they love has nothing to do with the difference between Vanity Fair and the Dial or with marketing.
