Can anyone briefly explain how this came to be, or its consequences?
Are there resources available (books, journal articles, white papers,
etc.) which would explain why Comp never took hold here as a discipline?
I'm interested both in historical reasons and today's consequences
insofar as it seems Lit instructors usually end up teaching comp,
especially at the college level.
