    Har! There you have it, philistine, eh? Do you know why I have not read the primary sources? Because I have other things to do in my life than read. Really. Honestly. I am not joking! I guess this...

    Well said. Ulysses is an absolutely brilliant book, far better than anthing Faulkner ever wrote. I don't have much time for Faulkner, I have never been able to read any of his novels, he may very...

    Actually no they are not. Your inept reading of the text is your problem, not a problem of the text itself. The four hobbits-Frodo, Merry, Pippin and Sam all change during the novel-they "grow up",...
  4. Of course Pushkin was more influential than...

    Of course Pushkin was more influential than Tolstoi-he was at the forefront of the Russian literary movement. Pushkin is a brilliant poet, he was famous more for his verses than his prose, and he was...

    .

    As Tolkien said in relation to Wagner, a somewhat tenous link, the similarities start and end with the rotundity of the rings. :)

    When you talk about 'genuine' and 'believable', I do not...

    I am not talking about 'representation'-if there is such a thing, I am talking about actual quality, India has not produced a novelist of the quality of Joyce or Tolstoi (as examples), it has not, in...

    I fail to see how Tolkien can be classified as 'mediocre'-he was one of the greatest and most important writers of the 20th century, it is also nice to see that you have so deftly categorized...

    In terms of originality it is somewhat difficult to argue against France, especially in the last 150 or so years. Yes, England probably has the deepest literary culture out of any...

    Yes, perhaps I am in this case being narrow-minded and elitist, but I put literary influence above all other influences, as I already mentioned such a thing is entirely subjective-but looking at the...

    Haven't heard of a lot of those novels to be honest, but to compare Stephen King with Dostoevskii or Kafka is ridiculous in my opinion. I guess such a list is very subjective, but I doubt whether...
  12. German literature is good, though in my opinion...

    German literature is good, though in my opinion it lags behind French and Russian literature-however if you included German speaking countries or writers i.e Czech, Austria, then Germany would easily...

    I think my vote would go to Russia-esp. 19th century Russian literature-Russia has an enormous variety of authors back then-guess it merely serves to prove Harry Lime's point that political despotism...
