Andrews rejects the classical notion of poetry as the 'direct treatment' of things in language, arguing that the only thing that can be so treated is language itself.

Andrews and politics

Since 1975, Andrews has been a professor of political science at Fordham University. His courses take an unorthodox look at the political system. Looking outside the mainstream paradigm, he harshly criticizes what he calls the US government's policies of oppression and subversion.
