In response to:

Spreading Hegel's Wings from the May 29, 1975 issue

To the Editors:

Anthony Quinton [NYR, May 29] has either got the wrong sage or the wrong suburb—Coleridge was certainly known as “the sage of Highgate,” and Engels was described by the irritated Hyndman as “the great panjandrum” of Regent’s Park; but Marx lived in Kentish Town, and however sagacious his posthumous works, they were at least written before his move to Highgate Cemetery, even if they weren’t read until long afterwards.

Anthony Quinton replies:

Sorry, wrong suburb.
