Take one faggot. Write as flowery as you want, as long as its good of course. don't let no fuck boy tell you how to write in your own voice. Either you hit it big or you don't, at the end of the day all you could have ever been was yourself anyways

People are intimidated by a name. People are fr more receptive to people they implicitly believe are on a "higher level" than them. But take away the name and people have no problem saying what they truly think

This was displayed in its purity in the last poetry thread, someone posted a Lord Byron poem as Anonymous, nd everyone clamored to critique the thing, calling it tryhard, etc. But all mouths were closed once it was revealed who the actual author was.


tl;dr these hoes will never respect you until you make it
>>
>>7662913
makes sense, byron was bad

bullied keats who was a far greater talent, it was clear byron only made it anywhere because he was born into money
>>
>>7661431
You don't write like that famous author and you're not hot shit, faggot. Work through the masters before you try to be them.

Is it considered acceptable to critique someones critique of your work?

yes

Don't be Nils Runeberg

implying the teacher would know orwell, the same way /lit/ plebs didn't recognize byron

it was michael crichton at harvard
>>
>>7662913
I noticed this on forums too. All the cool internet kids aren't usually that funny. it's the name and large post number that gives them that oomph.

I've even caught myself thinking something I just read was more profound than it was when I found out who the author was. It's bullshit

That's a cool ass bird, son

Chrichton turned in an Orwell essay and received a B-.

orwell is garbage too

Byron was a personality, not a poet.
Mind you, he was one hell of a personality.

Seriously though, Byron is bad. And his poetry would be outdated if written now. Unless I'm misunderstanding what happened, anons were right to critique it. Byron (who wasn't very good) was a product of his time. It's entirely reasonable to critique him as they did when operating under the assumption that the poem in question was written by some faglord last week.

The only problem I see is becoming quiet. They should have stuck with their criticism.

>>
>>7662913
you're not wrong, but your evidence is shit. if people assume some fag is writing with 19c diction, today, then of course they'll call it pseud poetry.

why don't you use contemporary poets in your gay ass experiments. at least put up berryman or heaney etc.
