Would Lovecraft have had brilliant prose if he were not burdened with autism?

Here antagonistic trolling and retarded sincerity become indistinguishable.

Twain being better than Lovecraft is as obvious and verifiable as gravity or the sum of two and two. Why even point it out?

Twain is legitimately one of America's greatest writers.

His wit is remarkable and entertainment value immense. Just because he didn't stretch his talents to more abstract ideas more often doesn't mean he wasn't wonderfully gifted.

I like Twain but he's probably Reddit before Reddit existed.

“Well, what do you expect? The human body, when confined, produces certain odors which we tend to forget in this age of deodorants and other perversions. Actually, I find the atmosphere of this room rather comforting. Schiller needed the scent of apples rotting in his desk in order to write. I, too, have my needs. You may remember that Mark Twain preferred to lie supinely in bed while composing those rather dated and boring efforts which contemporary scholars try to prove meaningful. Veneration of Mark Twain is one of the roots of our current intellectual stalemate.”
