Cosmopolis wasn't that bad

>>7569464
Good Roth list, but I'd put Communist lower. I recommend My Life as a Man and Patrimony.

>>7569464
Just out of curiosity, what did you find so good about Sabbath's Theater?
>>
>>7571333
Reading about old people having sex is fun

>>7569437
You're both wrong; it's Emily Dickinson.

I'm pretty certain it's Chaucer, actually. He certainly considers those the greatest American poets (along with Stevens), but he made a list of the seven or so greatest literary artists of all time, and they were Shakespeare, Dante, Cervantes, Chaucer, Milton, Homer and the Jahwist. Might have included Virgil too, but idr. Anyway, Shakespeare is definitely number one for him, while Dante and Cervantes are a distant second. Next are Chaucer and Milton, and he ultimately prefers Chaucer. If he were to extend the list a little, he'd also include Plato, Montaigne, Moliere, Goethe, Tolstoy, Joyce and Proust. And you can keep going, of course. But ultimately, I'm pretty sure Chaucer is number 4.

I haven't read it. If I read any more Roth I think it'll be the Zuckerman books, but to be honest I'm not that into him or McCarthy. (But I love the other two).
