Heartman--a bookseller, bibilographer, and utopian--criticizes the appointment of Archibald MacLeish as Librarian of Congress, not as 'any reflection on Mr. MacLeish as a gentleman, an editor, and an accomplished writer,' but because the president shouldn't appoint a poet to do the job of a librarian or a bookseller.
