Lapham’s Quarterly shows how artists of all stripes reside pretty far down the wages totem pole. Great writers from the past like T.S. Eliot and William Faulkner would likely be double-timing as Starbucks baristas or selling paint at Home Depot in this day and age to pursue their craft. Just goes to show the vast lot of the artistic set is about as far removed from the Wall Street baron class as one can get. After you take a gander at the chart below, head on over to Lapham’s to check out their full Spring 2010 edition.
