Where do I start with this gent? Is How to Read and Why a good place to start?
You stupid nigger, read his recommendations not anything he actually wrote. I assure you, wikipedia is a good start and end
how to read and why is still a recommendation of on the things to read, if it's not his recommendation it's his take on religion
his one novel is kind of bad but his religion ones are pretty good
he is a critic he tells you what is good for consumption and why
I read pic related.
There's no discernible talent.
his most significant/worthwhile contributions to actual literary criticism is his early stuff on poetry, which is still taught and taken seriously by almost everyone who isn't a contrarian edgelord. start with anxiety of influence and read the visionary company for a really thoughtful intro into the romantic poets
