sooooo PATHETIC!!!! i just can't understand why writers and poets have
to use deep words,when in fact they can just use simple words so
as not to give headaches and nosebleed to their readers!! uuugghhh!:flare:

I don't understand why anyone would waste their time registering at a literature forum if they didn't appreciate and like literature.

I think I just got a nosebleed reading this thread

Agreed, Haunted and I think I'm getting a headache, too, reading such a non-sensible thread.

I agree with Homers child, why come on a literature forum if you find authors or literature such a health hazzard, walangkwentatoh?

Another thought: If literature and poetry is not to your liking, may I suggest reading a plumber's manual?

Just curious now; why did you put this thread under O'Henry?

08-08-2009, 01:36 AM
I haven't read O. Henry (one of many startling omissions I find myself guilty of. Well, I don't feel guilty exactly, but...).

Maybe this is a student, and the story had vocab some students were just bound to get distracted by? I mean, at that point, our tender concerns as literature aficianados (O. Henry-vets and virgins alike) wouldn't really be expected by the needlessly-strangled imagination of one who is apparently willing to engage so much more in the tales they find, and are given.

I guess if your nose is actually bleeding, maybe you've got to punch back somehow.

Try using a dictionary. This may seem laborious but is weel worth the effort in the long run. :(

Makes me think of the days when I first started reading Nietzsche and pretty much had a dictionary hand-in-hand with Thus Spoke Zarathustra :lol:

Anyway, to the thread starter; I think it best if you stop reading literature all together. I'm sorry but I don't know what else to say. I can totally understand being a bit overwhelmed by unfamiliar words, especially if your new to reading classics. But if you're that fustrated and impatient, then don't bother, there's plenty of other things you could be enjoying. I found reading writers like Joyce or Nietzsche hard, but I found it kind of a fun challenge. But hey, that's not for everybody.

I mean, if you think O. Henry's hard. . . . .

well, you have a point there, but in, language, you make your writing beautiful using elegant languuage
