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

>my birthday was yesterday
>a day before Joyce's birthday
>the day Infinite Jest was published
>I was born a year after it was published
What does it all mean?
>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.
>it's fucking nothing.
>people born after 1993 have already learned to talk
Would you have sex with this 5 year old girl, now that she's 21?
