WHAT HAVE I DONE??/
HEIL HITLER!!!! OSGILKSDJGSDGLK funniest movie oh my g o d
THE BEST. I can’t believe it took me so long to watch.
UMmmm. besides Woolf - Gwendolyn Brooks, Edgar Allan Poe, Tennessee Williams, Vladimir Nabokov (but he’s originally Russian), Richard Wright, Twain… and I’m starting to go blank ‘cuz it’s late.
AH sorry god I fell asleep. NABOKOV!! We get to read Lolita next year for ~European lit~ (I mean I’ve read it but as a class!) Anyway, I realize more and more how illiterate I am in terms of American so.. that I should fix.
I don’t think so. she was one of the biggest early 20th century authors! tbh she’s part of the reason why I now prefer american to european writing (which is a big deal for me, because growing up, I was very much the classic european lit girl).
Ahh no way. I have a huge amount of respect for the works I’ve read so far but they haven’t been books that I would consider my favorites by any means. Or books that I would read if left to my own devices (although my favorite A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is American…) Which are your favorite American authors?
ahhhh I love her so much. she’s basically the one who invented modern stream-of-consciousness or really, stream-of-consciousness as a major style of writing and she writes so PRETTILY. she’s a good transition from european to american (i would know).
oohh brilliant. And I could use some transitional because our required in class reading has been very heavy, very very American (Twain, Melville, now Steinbeck) stuff. Something a bit ~prettier~ would be nice.
virginia woolf :D
I’ve never read anything of hers. I won’t ask “is it good” because that is a dumb as fuck question but.. what is it like?
