Re-blogging this fun article because authors and their behavior have always been food for discussion, and it is time we all understand this dialogue will never be censored out.
30. Gustave Flaubert on George Sand
“A great cow full of ink.”
29. Robert Louis Stevenson on Walt Whitman
“…like a large shaggy dog just unchained scouring the beaches of the world and baying at the moon.”
28. Friedrich Nietzsche on Dante Alighieri
“A hyena that wrote poetry on tombs.”
27. Harold Bloom on J.K. Rowling (2000)
“How to read ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’? Why, very quickly, to begin with, and perhaps also to make an end. Why read it? Presumably, if you cannot be persuaded to read anything better, Rowling will have to do.”
that's just sad
— Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind
Caligula is the story of a superior suicide. It is the story of the most human and the most tragic of errors. Unfaithful to man, loyal to himself, Caligula consents to die for having understood that no one can save himself all alone and that one cannot be free in opposition to other men.
i read this one in french and i still can't believe i was able to finish it without having to consult my dictionary that often.
i'm currently in love with Camus. i've only started reading his books this year and yet, every time i read one of his works i feel as if it's written for me.
in this play Caligula, the Roman Emperor, is torn by the death of Drusilla, his sister and lover. Due to his seemingly unstable mental health (insanity) he rejects friendship and manipulates his own assassination.
— F.Scott Fitzgerald
