It’s funny now how reviews do not necessarily appear in the places one wants or expects, but instead they appear mysteriously, including, today, an excellent one – at least, not surprisingly, I thought it was excellent – on the Blue Guides website, which both summarises and engages with my findings in a way which I found helpful. It is about the issue of how far museums should be didactic; how far didacticism is off-putting to the public or a necessary part of deepening public understanding. The author makes the analogy with basic grammar. Teaching grammar has become unfashionable for the same reason as didacticism. A schoolroom or a playground ? A set-menu restaurant or a smorgasbord ? Exactly.
