>mfw uni prof calls DFW a "talented but minor writer"
>minor writer
>minor

Should I drop out?

>>7691443
Low quality b8
>>
>>7691443
he's right.
>>
>>7691443
Yes, you should drop out. Calling such a minor writer "talented" is just bullshit.
>>
>>7691443

name 5 notable authors who were influenced by DFW
>>
>>7691443
who is DFW

>this is not bait
>>
>my prof triggered me by presenting an opinion i don't agree with but can't argue against
>>
>>7691470
there are no notable authors anymore, maybe if DFW did not happen to live at the tail end of the 'literature' as an institution, he could've been pretty influential.
>>
>>7691489
This is exactly what they've said since the beginning of time, why do you think that your lifetime is special?
>>
>>7691470

Tao Lin
John Green
Dave Eggers
Don DeLillo (I know he's been writing before DFW, but Underworld is obviously inspired by IJ)

I can't name a fifth one because, as said before, it's kind of recent, but just you wait, in 200 years there will be so much writers who owe great debts to DFW.
>>
dfw wrote about tv...tv was irrelevant before he even fucking died, can u imagine how fucking irrelevant that shit will be to people in another 200 years? this is also why corny emm effs who think they gonna make some great book about internet culture are sadly mistaken
>>
>>7691493
He's not saying that our lifetime is "special"
Its just that there are soooo many writers in this age, many of them draw from the same influences, so its more difficult for voices to be pronounced these days.
>>
>>7691493
the way the internet pretty much destroyed the concepts of relevance, influence and who a 'writer' is, the difference between 'literature', 'text content' and 'multimedia content'...

dfw is like ayn rand, he wrote a best seller that plebs think is deep cuz its long as shit and not completely retarded, but clearly he is not a serious writer

Are you on /lit/

>>7691549
Yes I am, hello fellow classmate

Don't listen to >>7691567, he's pretending to be me. I'm the guy in your class and I don't browse /lit/.

>>7691518
'the novel' as a form of 'literature' is a product of a time when text content was replicated by the printing press and distributed via 'books'. no text content creator has so far managed to deal with this cataclysmic shift in text distribution.
>>
>>7691511
>in 200 years there will be so much writers who owe great debts to Gaddis, Pynchon, and other authors DFW ripped off

I literally laughed out loud at this.

yfw they already do that

You do realize that DeLillo read Infinite Jest as it was being written, right? You do know that, right? Jesus, these new posters...
>>
>>7691812

DeLillo also corresponded with DFW, which just further proves the connection.
>>
>>7691889
Have you read Underworld? It makes IJ look like a hormonal diary.. Comparing the two is offensive
>>
>>7691511
so you think underworld was written and published in one year?
