William Faulkner on Ernest Hemingway: “He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary.”

Ernest Hemingway on William Faulkner: “Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words?”

Poor Hemingway.

I read the first two chapters of A Farewell to Arms today. The drivellingly passive circular paragraphs and embarrassing run-on sentences put my mind out of breath, so I put myself out of my misery by throwing the book across the room. What an empty load of nothing to say.

Hi. Thanks for the friending.

I've actually only read Hemingway's short stories. But then, I've only read "A Rose for Emily" as well. Oh wait, I sorta read Sound and the Fury, but alas, I forgot everything as I read it.
