Now me, I would have to go with my negro Shakespeare.

Straight up.

I'm fond of George Orwell. He's not the greatest, but I do enjoy his works.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

How did I forget Tolstoy?

The only work of his I've read is War and Peace, but it was phenomenal.

This is like asking whose the greatest musician ever.

As far as that analogy goes I would say Shakespeare equals the Beatles.

I've only read Anna Karenina.

It took me the best part of the year (I read slowly), so I'm taking a break before reading War and Peace.

Straight up.

1. What a safe answer.
2. Your 'negro' Shakespeare? He was about as white as you could get - definately not a negro.
3. Edgar Allen Poe, Stephen King, Clive Barker.

I wouldn't say that any of them are the g.o.a.t, though - each period of time has its heroes and outcasts - what's accepted as 'good' is usually hand in hand with what era of time it's in. IMO.

1. I'll disregard my opinion, just for you and pick a much more dangerous one. I'll go with . . . J.K. Rowling. Are you happier now?
2. Do you always take everything so literal?

If we're also talking poets, Robert Frost is excellent.

I downloaded the ebook of that, but it was the British version (I'm American). So I read the first chapter and I have no idea what's going on because it's all old british slang that seems like gibberish to me

Way to seriously kill his joke

My favourite author would have to be Alan Moore. Wrote both Watchmen and V for Vendetta? Any person who could lay claim to one of those, nevermind both, is a literary genius.

I don't know if you're joking, but the slang in A Clockwork Orange was made up by Burgess. It's not British or anything. You just have to read it and dyou'll figure it out.

You know - I was completely stoked when I heard they were making a movie out of the Watchmen, but after seeing clips, I'm not that excited anymore. It seems way too cheese-tastic, IMO. I'll still check it out though. Might surprise me.
