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

>>17489388
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.
