Vocation, Vocation, Vocation: Lewis Simpson's Lives by Michael Kreyling Imagining Our Time: Recollections and Reflections on American Writing. By Lewis P. Simpson. Introduction by Fred Hobson. Baton Rouge: Louisiana State UP, 2007. xv + 265 pp. $45.00 cloth. In the jacket photograph for Imagining Our Time, Lewis Simpson poses with a slightly arch smile, almost but not quite a smirk, and his tieless collar is open and spread. He looks less like a citizen of his beloved "republic of letters" than an Israeli general in civilian clothes. When he died in 2005, at the age of eighty-eight, he had written six books and edited several more on American and Southern literary culture (the upper-case "S" must be used for Simpson's work), and edited the New Series of the Southern Review from its inception in 1965. Without heading up a cult or school, Lewis Simpson set a standard. Some of my own best work appeared in the Southern Review under his editorship; of all the elders in the field, Simpson was the one I most wanted to be. If I had been consulted in the editing of this ensemble of Simpson's late essays (most postdate his "retirement" in 1986),
