I call bullshit. There's no way your English professor doesn't know who David Foster Wallace is. He was the most talented writer of his generation, and also the most tortured. He was like a comet flying by at ground level. It's rare that a writer is so inventive that when he dies the language is impoverished. Sorry, but I can't take this seriously.
>>
>>7687850
Demonstrably false.
>>
>>7687923
go ahead, demonstrate it
>>
Yeah, I'm pretty sure even my highschool english teacher was all over DFW. She was unusually cool though.
>>
Even the janitor at my primary school carried a copy of Infinite Jest in his back pocket.
>>
>>7687923

>>7689808
>>7689797
I didn't know about him back then but one of my teachers always had a huge blue book on her desk and said it was funny or something. It makes me wonder if it was the Jester

He's quoting a New York Times article from like two weeks ago.
Come on, guys.
>>
>>7690649
> there are people who believe that writing for the NYT
Jfc
>>
>>7690653
Your greenish construction fails to make grammatical sense. Maybe you could try reading a little bit more. Allow me to recommend: Infinite Jest, by one David Foster Wallace.
>>
>>7690658
You should work on reading comprehension if you think that post didn't make grammatical sense. Try reading more. May I recommend "The Cat in the Hat"?
