The 30 Harshest Author-on-Author Insults In History

Reblogged from Archer's Asylum:

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. 

 

................................................................................................................

 

By Emily Temple

 

Authors just don’t insult each other like they used to. Sure, Martin Amis raised some eyebrows when he claimed he would need brain damage to write children’s books, and recent Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Egan made waves when she disparaged the work that someone had plagiarized, but those kinds of accidental, lukewarm zingers are nothing when compared to the sick burns of yore.

 

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

"Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens."

— Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

To hell with human feelings, I can achieve the impossible by sacrificing everything

Caligula - Pierre-Louis Rey, Albert Camus

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.

When people ask me why I waste my time in reading a book that is going to turn into a movie.

"That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong."

— F.Scott Fitzgerald
