You don't realize how homogenized modern literature actually is. It's much like how a pig covered in its own shit and slop doesn't realize how disgusting it is, though at least the pig has a use in the end.
>>7627894 One can assume by the subject matter of the books mentioned that, in fact, this clever anonymous was not arguing in complete good faith but was instead assuming a sarcastic tone! Yes, it's true, you may not believe it, but it is likely so. Sarcasm being a form of rhetoric that reverses the statements of its user, one can assume the "nice and sanitary" Hogg, Dhalgren, etc. are in fact commonly regarded as transgressive and "dirty" novels, as pointed out by >>7627887 in earnest. This latter poster then went on to note that, despite the aforementioned novels' being labeled, via sarcasm, as transgressive and dirty, they are in fact not so, given that they are part of a homogenized Postmodern canon that elevates the transgressive and dirty above all else, thereby nullifying and stripping of meaning the very labels that define them.
The mention of the "degenerate" Pride & Prejudice (sarcasm, again) is used as a counterpoint to juxtapose pre-Postmodern transgressive fiction with post-Premodern English canonical literature. I hope, through this explanation, I have made these two posts clear to you.
>>7627924 Aha, my good friend, greentext is often used as a method of quoting another speaker, and here we find one speaker attempting to "quote" what he (or she) perceives as the childish and arrested thematic worldview of Postmodernist writers such as Cormac McCarthy. Indeed, when one speaker "hides his cards" (my own rhetorical definition) by shielding his true values, the latter anonymous speaker has no choice but to characterize Postmodernism as he conceives of it.
As for the other anonymous speaker, I cannot speak for him, although one can be sure I would like to!
