The taste, the entire aesthetic universe, of any one individual is Andorra, it's Belgium in the best case. It's a small insignificant country. It's poetry, literature that's the world, the universe of possibilities. Most people rule out whole continents. Not being interested in a few Poish imports doesn't mean I don't think that Polish poetry is probably just as rich as any other. Most readers are very limited, just by the linguistic factor alone. Only knowing a few languages is an extreme limitation. It would be like only eating yams and pork. Two foodstuffs. If you only know English, that's even worse. If you only know English you don't even know English.
