Well, that whole post is a bit out of left field, and frankly, I don't know what to make of it, or what it has to do with my quoted post, or anything else in this thread, for that matter.Sir Elton said:I don't see the big deal. Here, I thought Barsoomcore was a writer like . . . TS Eliot. But looking at his writing, he uses regular language, like ERB did. But then, I guess that what makes it good.
Barsoomcore, you're a regular joe writer, writing for the demos. Do not ever become a writer like the one who wrote "The Great Gatsby." I never read that book, but if the Intellectual Elite is hailing it as great, then it must be very bad. flowery prose as all get out might win points for them, but the demos wants something they'd enjoy.
We have an entire other forum for literary criticism (although usually confined to fantasy/sci-fi genre stuff) so I'm not sure it's really appropriate to hijack this excellent story hour for a discussion on the merits of FitzGerald. For what its worth, though, I always thought The Great Gatsby a fascinating, easy read.
And I don't know what you mean by demos in that context. Usually demos is used as short for demonstration.
