30 Writers Other Writers Loved To Hate
(Excerpt) Read more at buzzfeed.com ...
Now really, there is always some writer, somewhere, who thinks some other writers are drek, it’s called “diversity”.
Pretty good company. There’s probably a similar list for “Politicians that other politicians love to hate”
[ Pretty good company. Theres probably a similar list for Politicians that other politicians love to hate ]
Palin and Cruz would be at the top of that honored list....
a brilliant piece.
I love how they have a damning comment from one writer, and then that writer is the subject of condemnation in the next entry....
I especially liked this one:
Have you ever heard of anyone who drank while he worked? Youre thinking of Faulkner. He does sometimes and I can tell right in the middle of a page when hes had his first one. Ernest Hemingway
For Hemingway to criticize Faulkner for drinking while he wrote is laughable. Most of the World War II war correspondents couldn’t stand Hemingway.
That Grapes of Wrath book is the most ridiculous piece of commie propaganda I ever read.
It's bad enough that I'm sure they still make the kids read it in school.
Yes, what a slob Hemingway was.
It’s beautifully written. Most Marxist Literary types now regard it as anti-Communist.
When Zelda first met Hemmingway, she told her husband that Hemmingway was insane.
Later, Hemmingway told Fitzgerald that Zelda was insane.
This piece is like listening to a family of incest participants stranded on an island somewhere and slowly going insane.
Surprised no one went after F. Scott Fitzgerald or Sinclair Lewis. Not that I don’t like them just that nobody took a shot.
How was Norman Mailer left off the list?
Lewis isn’t read enough today to merit attention in an article like this.
Two peas in a pod. LOL
Thanks for the tidbit.
If all you’ve ever read of Steinbeck is “Grapes of Wrath,” you ought to try reading Steinbeck.
Faulkner was my first thought as well, although with Hemingway saying this the obvious thought is “It takes one to know one”.
Faulkner was an overrated, drunken hack who wrote to buy is next stock and store of booze. Little better than the same genre of “brilliant” reporters of his era.
"Her hips waved a happy hello."
