why are Anglos like this?

>> No.17489590

Because their small egos are conditioned to play the comparison game
Why do you think 13% of the population commits 50% of the crime?
Its this manner of thinking that causes it

>> No.17489591

He good obviously, but I don't get how people think he's the greatest thing of all time

Homer is only responsible for the Iliad and the Odyssey

Shakespeare is responsible for such a fuckton of greatness that it's impossible

Less than 4 posts in. You're slow today /lit/, normally a person complaining about Anglos is in the second or first post.

>> No.17490009

Yes, Shakespeare is better than Homer. We know that the entire canonized Iliad and Odyssey that we know today is not the sole product of Homer himself, but that the story underwent massive amounts of edits and additions between the time it was first orated by Homer and first written down.

Chaucer is better than both, Froggies can seethe al they want to but it's the truth

>> No.17490076

And that makes Shakespeare better?
Homer produced the two greatest epics ever that have lasted thousands of years. He created a tradition out of it. Piss off.

I've never heard an idea from Harold Bloom that I thought "wow, that's actually very interesting!"

>> No.17490089

He is though. Cope more faggot.

This. Harold’s work on Shakespeare was boring and insightless.

No one with Harold Bloom's word count--written and read--could ever be interesting. Not enough life. Not enough individuality. His mind got steamrolled by others' thoughts

>> No.17490440

In a nutshell - or longer, if you like - explain to me how Chaucer is greater than Shakespeare?

>> No.17490551

what is the greatest piece of lit criticism written on Homer and Shakespeare? is there anything worthy?
