Virginia Woolf on Ulysses:

>"I should be reading ‘Ulysses,’ and fabricating my case for and against. I have read 200 pages so far—not a third; and have been amused, stimulated, charmed, interested, by the first two or three chapters—to the end of the cemetery scene; and then puzzled, bored, irritated and disillusioned by a queasy undergraduate scratching his pimples. Tom, great Tom [T.S. Eliot], thinks this is on a par with ‘War and Peace’! An illiterate, underbred book, it seems to me; the book of a self-taught working man, and we all know how distressing they are, how egotistic, insistent, raw, striking, and ultimately nauseating."

>Mfw that cunt got BTFO by history and Ulysses is considered the best novel in the modernist tradition

What a bitch

No one cares. He's not even that great an author.

I think the greatest revenge was that she ended up looking like some lumpy-fucking potato head and Jimmy Jams got a fucking rad eyepatch

I'd say she needed a good kick in the face, but she looks like she's had enough.

Virginia Woolf's birthday is on the 28th of March. I suggest anyone in the area of East Sussex to visit the Monk house on that day and fart the place up, for good ol' Jimmie Jams.

I can't believe i actually kind of want an eyepatch because of jim jam flim flam

Gouging out your eye and using it in your art/describing the action vividly in your is the ultimate patrician way.

I could do this, i have one bad eye that i can afford to lose.

Do it and become the Van Gogh of eyes, bro. The other acceptable way is stabbing both your eyes out with your dead wife's brooch, but beggars can't be choosers, and we all know you don't have a wife.

>Mommy and Daddy took 3 months to read Endless Fun and they were so overcome by the brilliance of David Foster Career Move that they fucked and they fucked and they fucked over a long weekend and created a miracle of life that would grow up to educate himself deep in the heart of the internet and fuel his dreams with the memes of others until one day he'd become the greatest mind of his generation.

Why does she bully Eliot in every letter she writes? God, I hate this cunt.

Wasn't she just insecure for how self-conscious she was? Ulysses came out just before Mrs. Dalloway and she would go on to concede the former's merit after she got over herself.

>>7656098
She looks like Julian Casablancas but uglier and probably a bit more stupid.

I'm on the Nighttown section of ulysses. It's great how it reveals backstory/characterization through the hallucinations. Some funny stuff in this chapter too.

Would you have sex with this 5 year old girl, now that she's 21?

Cause TS Eliot was a hack

>>7656109
Woolf intended for Mrs. Dalloway to be the "correct" way of how Ulysses should have been written. She wrote it as a response to Joyce.
