Oscar Wilde [16 Nov 2006|12:47pm]

I am of the overwhelming opinion that Oscar Wilde is a genius. He is the most astute social critic of the past 300 years. The Picture of Dorian Gray is a great faery tale, it accomplishes the multi-faceted purposes of a general social critique of high London society, an examination of what true morals are, where hobby ends, and obsession begins, and the interesting conundrum of what do if you had all the time in the world. I also find his poetry to be uniquely emotional and astute in its observations.

I Love Oscar Wilde!

What a great idea!
I'm new- howdy!
I am in love with F. Scott Fitzgerald. I've read every thing by him and about him.
he was just so sad and hopelessly romantic and doomed and underappriciated (by women and critics).
I think i was born too late!

What a brilliant idea for a community! My favourite writers are (and in no particular order): JK Rowling, Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Rimbaud, JM Barrie, JT LeRoy.

I haven't the time right now to write why, because my mum is yelling at me to get off the computer. Heh heh. But I suppose if you're a fan of any of them, then you'll know what makes them so appealing. :)



You can't spell poetry without "Poe" [08 Jun 2004|11:05pm]

Hello! I just joined this group. Why? Three words: Edgar Allan Poe. I have a huge intellectual crush on the man.

I'm sad that I just recently discovered how witty he was. He's known for his horror stories and poems -- that's all they ever have us read in junior high & high school -- but I've got a book of his complete writings, and that man had a great, wicked sense of humor and an amazing imagination. Not to mention a huge vocabulary. Fwaaaah.

Plus, he apparently showed up for a parade wearing nothing but his boots and a sword when he was enrolled at West Point. That's funny and sexy.

I made a background tile of a drawing I did of Oscar Wilde a long time ago and thought some people here might enjoy it. :-)

Honestly, was there any one single writer who packed more ambiguity and wit into words than he...

J.M. Barrie has to be one of the most brilliant writers ever. In case you are unfamiliar with his name, he wrote Peter Pan, which happens to be the funniest children's book of all time.

My favorite quote from the book would have to be: "That is all we are, lookers-on. Nobody really wants us. So let us watch and say jaggy things, in the hope that some of them will hurt."

Well I don't quite know about a crush, but I do worship J.K. Rowling. Why? It's not so much her writing talent as it is her ability to a) create awesome characters, b) think up intricate plot lines, and most importantly c) research, research, research, which I never, ever manage to get the motivation up to do. And it makes me squee.

... okay, so maybe I would fancy a bit of a grope. *cough mutter blush bolt*

Shazam! I am the first non-founder of Writers' Worship

YAY! Well, today I am going to profess my love for some amazing writers:

J.K. Rowling
Philip Pullman
C.S. Lewish
Jane Austen

J.K. Rowling--So the HP books aren't great works of lit. But they are the most enjoyable reads I've ever had...something about her writing style just sucks me in. I love them to death, my favorite books ever, by far. Just the way she...makes them fun and believable fantasy. And Ron is cute, too.

Philip Pullman--The His Dark Material books are soooooooo amazing. Just the way he makes them work...rich with imagery and symbolism and character and religion and description and exotic locales.

C.S. Lewis-- Wow. I first read the Chronicles of Narnia books when I was eight, about 7 years ago, and I don't remember them much,b ut I remember LOVING them. When I heard that there was to be a movie of Lion, Witch and Wardrobe starring none other than my beloved Nicole Kidman, I decided to reread them. And WOW! They aren't as engaging as HP, nor as interesting as HDM, but wow. Something about the land of Narnia. This was where it all started, my love of fantasy, in a desk in a school.

Jane Austen--She writes fun, frothy books but the name "Jane Austen" disguises it. Yummy. Romantic reads that make me wish for a Darcy of my own. (Not that I don't loooove my boyfriend)
